I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

- Wide and diverse technologies and sales methodologies to learn
- Best operations and employee tools
- Space to grow in the organization

Cons

- Moderate salaries compared to other smaller companies but better than most giant companies
- low chances to overachieve as the bar became too high
- Away from Software industry

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Review the salary structure compared to other vendors
- Evolve your GTM strategy inline with the current political , financial and technological WW changes
- Internal managers need a LOT of personal development to become leaders i.e not every good sales man can be a sales manager and not every good sales manager can be a GM , sales or systems engineer management is totally different from people management which you need to develop a LOT .
