    Flexible and easy going environment. However, it varies drastically from team to team.

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Competitive pay, good benefits and the advantages of contributing in a world-class, world-leading institution. Most management is flexible and focused on results. Definite benefit to working in California but the good news is that the mentality is slowly changing and telecommuting is more and more accepted. A case of "eating your own dog food" since Cisco sells the technologies that allow for remote work. Had I not have a family illness I needed to tend to I'd still be there.

    Cons

    Has lost some of the agility as it has grown. There are some people who still cling to the past rather than work at making today and tomorrow better. When I was there they were moving to the open concept work space
