    I worked at Cisco Systems as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people I worked with were very friendly and quick to help. The campus was great and offered a variety of activities outside of the cubicle.

    Cons

    I was only an intern, but I was given little to no attention. I felt like all the tasks given to me were trivial and I was only there to fill in a quota. The environment itself is very depressing: a sea of grey cubicles and dim lighting makes it very difficult to be excited about your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better interaction with interns is crucial if you want to retain any of them. A little lighting goes a long way.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems

    Pros

    4 weeks of vacation
    working hour is round 40 hrs/week, no need to work on weekend.
    project schedule is very reasonable, not a whole lot of pressure
    Good place for old people as well as fresh graduate

    Cons

    career upward mobility is not very high.
    overall compensation is getting worse year by year.
    Not a good place for engineers with 3 to 8 year experience due to poor compensation for them
    Not many interesting projects due to many new projects or idea are cut.
    Instead of building it, Cisco always buy its from outside
