    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to gain experience and knowledge.

    Cons

    Slow to move. Typical big company bureaucracy to get anything done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be focused, be nimble and move fast. It's OK to not make everyone happy, but move fast and make quick decisive decisions. Don't be extreme but create a little bit of culture where you either move up or move out (keep people on their toes)
