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

    Pros

    Excellent culture of freedom and empowerment, great people, great work. One man being at the helm has obviously helped largely retain focus on the company's goals. As an employer, Cisco provides so many opportunities to learn and challenge oneself! Truly satisfying if you are looking for stability and growth too .

    Cons

    Not the best paymaster. Cisco has grown in size and a result slowed down over the years and there's more "governance" now than before, some of it which seems like red tape

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not compromise on hiring standards and bring in inadequately skilled people

    Pros

    Plenty of options to work on the technical or business side.

    Cons

    The company is getting big, so it takes a lot of time and effort to drive change.
