I worked at Cisco Systems as a contractor (more than 3 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

See if you can drum up the excitement of 1999.
