    Pros

    Great place to work. Also great place to learn technologies with the flexibility to move internally within other product groups.

    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 Management

    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
