I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Challenging and fulfilling work Competitive compensation Great benefits - gym, daycare, on-site health center, excellent coverage for fertility treatment & adoption, and many incentitives to stay fit and give back Flexible schedule with work from home and other locations option

Cons

Can be long hours if you don't self-manage your time Not as much investment in outside professional development as I'd like

Advice to Management

Stay competitive with compensation... especially with top performers who should be a 1.0 or above comp ratio! Invest more in professional development for people... even make it mandatory to ensure development is taken seriously.
