    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 Management

    - 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

    Pros

    Really care about the growth and development of the Employee. The company offers good health care, benefit, and retirement plan for the employee.

    Cons

    Some departments have a shortage of human resources. Sometimes employee needs to handle a lot of projects at the same time and need to work long hours in order to complete the assignment.

    Advice to Management

    the productivity of the organization will improve if all the departments have a clear picture of all the functional sectors.
