Pros

Very good, helpful culture within group. People were always ready to help, good mentorship provided to new comers. Management had good communication and were empathetic to employee needs. Being a large company, much scope for moving positions between divisions.

Cons

Some of the legacy systems just need maintenence and some bells and whistles development. Not much creativity and growth possible. Maybe the restructing has improved things.

    Pros

    Can climb corporate ladder or sit back and go with the flow. Sky is the limit at Cisco. You can chill with your feet on the ground if you would like to.

    Cons

    It is easy to get caught up in a relaxed working environment and lose your motivation. Salary is relatively lower than most valley jobs. Team members are older.
