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.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    flexible schedules and great benefits

    Cons

    Career growth at Cisco depends on the team and product. If the team/product is one of the focuses for Cisco, the career growth can be fast. However, after the team has truly integrated into the Cisco culture/processes, growth can be slow. Cisco does provide resources for mentorship and career advancement, however it is up to the employee to manage it well.
