    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Jose, CA

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    You get all the benefits of a large company. You get VPs who's only job is to decide what flavor the soda is in the vending machines. It may be inefficient at times, but a lot of firepower can be brought to bear on a problem/market/product.

    Cons

    BIg companies have a lot of history, legacy products, existing customers, old code etc... Hard to be nimble.
