I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Competitive salary and great benefits. Large reputable company. Depending on what product you work on, you will have all the tools and resources needed to perform well in your job. Will send you to training if it helps.

Cons

A little unorganized. Management doesn't seem to be working that hard to retain talent. Some buildings are outdated. Company culture needs to work on becoming more helpful.

Advice to Management

Try hard to retain talent! Great people are leaving everyday to work at companies that show more care and attention to its employees.

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time

    Pros

    Starent Network was an exciting, energetic and rewarding place to work for. The people were extremely dedicated, management was approachable and gave a real sense of leadership and focus.

    Cons

    Following the Cisco Acquisition of Starent, the "family" feeling and the "Startup mentality" that I like in the job started slowly to change. The company felt less nimble and personal.

    Advice to Management

    Best of luck to those who survived the 2 year mark!
