    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, Good bonus program at mid- to senior levels, really smart people. Some products very strong. Great lab infrastructure for engineers to play and get certifications.

    Cons

    Strategy drifting a bit, promos based on relationships vs. competence, acquisition process, competitive response (including SDN). Solutions approach confusing. Too many re-orgs. San Jose buildings getting very old and need a major refresh.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of some very senior execs, allow for next wave to move up and inject new energy, new ideas. Consider stopping additional projects to free up spending into new projects. Fail more often on projects to learn.
