    Pros

    good benefits and pay, they don't look at dedication and good performance

    Cons

    can be a top performer but will get laid off down the road, don't trust Cisco

    Advice to Management

    HORRIBLE UPPER AND MIDDLE management, have "no feelings".. all about the bottom line, and not about the loyalty or dedication of long-term employees... Cisco is a "greedy" company, can care less about the employees who once believed in this company, very disappointing.

    Pros

    Stable company and position
    Work life balance
    Work from home

    Cons

    Don't Care
    Lack of Benefits
    Big Company (You're a Cog in the Machine)
    Forget being an individual
    New ideas are frowned upon
    Input that is seen as negative is looked down upon
    People at Cisco like to pat themselves on the back for every little thing they do correctly. Never mind addressing the real problems that the company faces.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the way things used to be. 3-4 years ago things were great. Now I feel like the company has lost it's way.
