I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

the company is flexiable on working time and many employees are working from home, this is good for people with young kids and elders, however this also means you need to work any time your boss needed

Cons

the company is very messy in terms of internal management, and most of the sales are pullin money into their own pocket together with VAR, lots of political fight, no one really care about business

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Market leader in networking
    Great work life balance
    Flat hierarchy is a fresh alternative to other beaurocractic Indian firms

    Cons

    It is not the best paymaster
    There are plenty of opportunities to grow in a technical field but it's hard to move from technical to managerial

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to build business leaders from within instead of relying heavily on outside

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time

    Pros

    they pay you; you can hide in most jobs for nearly forever.

    Cons

    Marketing is focused on "BSO"s -- bright shinny objects -- build the next great thing, but don't expect any support or interest beyond the, "see what I made" stage.
