    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great brand name and experience you can later leverage.

    Cons

    Easy to get lost and the best performers aren't always noticed. It's not what you know but who you know kid!

    Advice to Management

    It's simple, people managers should be people that 1) have an interest in managing and leading and 2) are good at it, i.e. they have the requisite people and soft skills to do the job effectively.

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good name to have on your CV, good career growth if you have a director who will help you - and you arent in a technical support role (TS).

    Cons

    Career growth is slow, pay rises are tough, and there are a lot of people who are "chaff", who are just riding it out for the pension after joining pre 2000 and enjoying the perks.

    Advice to Management

    Make people move around, having people in the same job for 15 years makes new blood impossible to attract (and retain).
