    I have been working at Cisco Systems

    Pros

    Cisco offers reasonable pay, ranked as top 25 paid company by CNN. Good name recognition. 4 weeks vacation. No major layoffs or RIF yet.

    Cons

    Long hours: 9 am - 7 pm. Might be common in bay area, but it's two hours more compared with east coast. The company headquarter sites in San Jose, a very expensive area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify the product portfolio into multiple fronts. Keep the initiative in consumer product.

    Pros

    Constant change. Interesting products and lots of them. Company ideals are admirable.

    Cons

    Constant change. Globalisation means jobs moving from the U.S. to India.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut back on employee "feel good" programs; what feels good right now is having a job. Get a new ad company; the TelePresence ads and brand building are brutally awful.
