I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great name, great products, easy to get access to CIOs. Still innovative, but has made some bad decisions in recent years.

Cons

The company is run by number crunchers. It is all about forecasting.
Salaries used to be top notch, but are lagging behind.

Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Cisco Systems as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work life balance, compensation and benefits....

    Cons

    Senior Management is in favor of some employees in the team and really do not get into to the depth of any issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Few managers are just bench warmers and not really fit to be in the role.
