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

    Pros

    Cisco continues to be a great place to work. Lots of interesting people, lots of interesting technology and well positioned for the future. There are always different opportunities spread around the world. Work/Life can be strained sometimes, but overall very flexible on when and where employees can work having a direct impact on where employees can learn, live and "play"

    Cons

    There has not been much movement on stock price to make the working ranks wealthy. There is not enough merit based promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay out of the consumer market.
