I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Stable, respectful and friendly work environment.

Compensation is below par. There is some late surge to fix this but it might turn out to be something too little, too late.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring compensation inline with industry leaders.

    I worked at Cisco Systems as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Dynamic, fast-paced work environment. Extremely bright and intelligent colleagues and peers.
    Innovation highly encouraged and supported from the top down.

    Cons

    Has had a number of cut backs over the past few years. Overall workload has increased across the board. Can be an extremely trying commute if you do not live in the immediate area.
