    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Company has amazing reach and allows for massive changes to be done, when looking to get a product out to the field it is a very impressive machine

    Cons

    Company has outgrown itself, and not only is it no longer nimble, it discourages any fast pace movement in the organization, innovation is to be bought instead of done in house whenever possible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    look for more opportunities for risk taking and innovation, break some of the process driven shops and create something that will bring back the light back to the eyes of the employees
