I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Enjoy working on cross functional global teams - love the CVO 9Cisco Virtual Office) solution for telecommute. Great supportive colleagues.

Cons

Feels a bit too tight in the new collaborative office space. Not everyone is comfortable with telecommute. Probably right choices with lay-offs last year, but still tough on everyone who left and who stayed.

    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
