I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Pockets of good, interesting and challenging work. Nice gym, cafes are healthy.

Cons

Certainly not better than other companies in the valley in terms stability, morale, compensation, or benefits. Not a bad company for 3-5 years...if you are there longer than that you are under paid and they would rather let you walk. Politics has an impact on day-to-day work. Managers are hit and miss, and with all the turnover, mostly

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Time for a bold investment in your human capital.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
