Pros

Cisco has highly qualified people working for them in many areas. It's easy to find support and mentoring. They provide flexible hours, and support working from home.

Cons

Cisco over the years has taken away employee benefits to improve bottom-line performance. This has resulted in a drop in employee satisfaction. Bureaucracy has crept in over the years. It will take some time to restructure the company to be a strong and growing player again like it used to be.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring back employee benefits, however small they may be.
