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

Pros

So influential in the rise of the internet. Bellweather for tech.

Cons

Lots of layers. Executive leadership has been spotty. No clear strategy in many groups other than playing the best defense.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cisco has the components and pieces, but it is so difficult to get things done when it affects and requires lining up multiple businesses. And there are still too many layers of management and process and overhead
