    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Market Leader in the Networking arena
    John Chambers - a visionary leader helping the company stay ahead of competition

    Cons

    Company has grown very large, not as nimble like some of thier smaller competitors
    Very slow stock price growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The "council" format of management was not working very well, as it added a lot of confusion trickling down to the rank and file

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

    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
