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

    Pros

    Variable work hours and dynamic environment. Mix of new, existing and legacy systems. Focus is back to core competencies.

    Cons

    Recent churn has seen loss of good talent due to early retirement, etc. Also lost some good people due to blind corporate reorganization. Usual large company politics on projects can be frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Vision. And take risks, too much playing it safe. Invest in R&D.

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent team players as well as supportive management. No micro-management, excellent corporate structure and no shortage of intelligent people. Very well respected by clients and industry peers.

    Cons

    Doesn't know what to do with L4-L7 or consumer based products, such as ACE and WAAS, even eCDS. Routing and switching, UCS, are its sweet spot - let the F5's, Riverbed's, Aruba, and others fight it out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management rocks !!!
