Pros

Cisco Systems is a well-run company, with reasonable compensation, fair and productive reviews, and fairly good morale. Problems are fairly quickly addressed, and overall management is quite good.

Cons

The company is so large that it's easy to become type-cast into doing a single thing.

Advice to Management

See if you can drum up the excitement of 1999.

    Pros

    Big company means a lot of resources. Everyone was very friendly and helped me to learn their massive coding libraries.

    Cons

    Because the teams and company are so large it is hard to get to know who you work with. However, this would be less of an issue if I worked full-time and not just a summer internship
