    Cons

    Slow to adapt Agile development methods
    Focus more on enterprise than consumers
    Sale of Linksys was a bad call - they may have not generated as much revenue as other parts of company, but it was good for the company's overall reputation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconsider consumer focused business - it may not generate as much revenue as enterprise-focused opportunities but it offers an inexpensive way to keep the company in the hearts and minds of consumers.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time

    Pros

    Since being hired work life balance has been great. Co-workers are always understanding of need to take time off to handle family matters or just to get away. Compensation and benefits are excellent, no concerns there. The culture is very inclusive and non-threatening. Management has always been very open to my opinions and supporting/helping me in career decisions.

    Cons

    Development and tech adoptions slower moving than other software competitors.
