Pros

    I have been working at Cisco Systems as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    very transparent - consultants are treated no differently than employees - full access - work can be lumpy but that comes with territory

    Cons

    Too large and therefore too complex an organization - hard to get a lot done quickly - too many people have to consulted on every step of the way - lot of make work

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

    Pros

    Improved strategy from the top and including intent to improve working conditions.

    Cons

    offshore staffing is replacing USA staffing. In many cases this staffing is not sufficiently trained or not available during USA working or extended working hours. Pressure to work up to 70 hours per week. Not enough lower level process improvement work.
