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

    Pros

    Wonderful work environment, superior benefits, great people who are just as motivated as you are to get the job done and help the end customer succeed.

    Cons

    Some of the previous perks were removed due to the down turn in the economy, yet while we have since posted excellent gains over previous years, those perks have not returned.

    Current Employee - Service Delivery in Washington, DC

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

    Pros

    - A large technology company with a large breadth of technology areas and market coverage should provide varied opportunities for growth
    - Great place for people with outstanding technical backgrounds who are looking to be challenged
    - Surprising amount of room for growth even though it is currently a large company

    Cons

    - Challenges exist for people who join and do not have detailed technical skills. Cisco struggles with how to use and take full advantage of non-technical resources such as Program Management
    - HR processes (career and professional development) not well managed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Focus more on HR processes (career & professional development), make managers take a larger role,focus on more than just the top 10%. You are losing a lot of very talented people because of it
    - Develop system integration and complex program management. It is going to be essential to taking services to the next step
