Pros

- If you are lucky, will get a industry leading feature/product development work
- Flexible work. Your manager will not ask your day to day or even weekly progress. Its up to you how to manage time. You just need to meet the final time lines

Cons

- Though it is an MNC, HR Resourcing work is outsourced to local HR companies. They try every trick to take you with less pay.
- Fixes the grade and pay based on the present pay. So, if you were working in a same company for say 10 years, you will stand loose here. Job hoppers salary would be more at this point and seems Cisco welcomes them with good pay :(

Advice to Management

If you are hiring some one spent good amount of years in one organisation, chances are that their base salary will be low compared to job hoppers. Keep this mind and provide them an advantage and place them in an appropriate grade and pay scale.
