    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
