    Pros

    Their expectations were very low. The was plenty of time to pursue personal interests.

    Cons

    Their expectations were very low. The simplest task took a very long time, and that did not concern anyone. The quality of the software was scary. New ideas suppressed were internally, and innovation was accomplished by purchasing other companies.

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    In the ios group for my internship at hq, it went very well. Had a good manager. Worked with people that great to work with.

    Cons

    Other location (Richardson for me) may be different. For my full time offer I chose Richardson for a combination of cost of living and family living in the area. All the good of the internship, the full time was opposite. My manager had described his group as having what I wanted, but it wasn't close. Not sure who to talk to, I spoke with the local choice program rep and was directed to another manager that just told I had to have been mistaken of the group I chose. So I found another job and left, just before I left I found out that I should have talked to normal HR and not anyone from the choice program about the false advertising of my group

    Advice to Management

    Need to communicate to new hires should a group not be as advertised, a new hire needs to talk to HR. During the introduction presentations, a question was asked what to do if this happens. The presenter really didn't really answer the question
