I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for 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!
