    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Terrific technology, access to company information via intranet is incomparable, a place where I could push the envelope and develop my own role - to a point.

    Cons

    The political manipulations of management are horrific; nothing inclusive about that. And largely it's for self benefit, not for the good of the firm. Amazed that the senior leaders can't see this or if they do, address it. Lots of very good people left disillusioned, depressed, and leaving the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Query attrition rates with the relevant managers. Do an employee sat. survey and ACT on the results.
