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

Pros

Flexible work schedule and place
Strong compensation package
Good opportunities to move around into different areas of company

Cons

'Over' collaboration leads to slow and painful decision making process
Too many instances where employees that are 'bad' for the larger group are not dealt with appropriately

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get a handle on too much collaboration and ensure right level of 'tops down' direction
Manage out employees who are no longer a fit and/or are negatively impacting the larger team

Recommends
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO
