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

Pros

You meet some brilliant people, and sometimes there are a few cool projects you can come across. Also, great flexibility in terms of work-life balance.

Cons

A lot of hot air, and it can take LOT of time to get anything done. Some areas are pretty bureaucratic in nature and it can bog down your interest.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give people freedom to do things as fast as they want to!

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    While Cisco does expect a lot from its employees, I am extremely impressed with its compensation and work life balance. I have seen Cisco do extraordinary things for my coworkers when they absolutely need it the most. Makes me very proud...

    Cons

    I struggle to find a negative, but If you are more comfortable with a small organization, then Cisco isn't the place for you.
