    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Access to lots of smart people and technology, as well as lots of good methodology in place to help success

    Cons

    Slower pace than startups, new ventures here tend to be more chaotic. Established business lines have figured out a lot of things

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more freedom to smaller groups to be creative and run fast and free

    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
