    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time

    Pros

    One can be at the bleeding edge of networking technology at Cisco as it is a market leader in most of the segments it operates in. It also has significant engineering, sales and marketing resources which enables it to solve complex problems for the customer.

    Cons

    Cisco has merged and acquired teams for the past 30 years and while it has tried to keep the acquired teams together under their respective business units, it has allowed allowed the teams to develop into isolated silos. This has resulted in customers seeing inconsistencies across product lines. While Cisco is actively trying to fix this, it is an arduous process.
