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

Pros

The culture fosters trust and respect. Flexible work hours allow employees work and life balance. Happy employees make a happier work environment, Start-up mentality encourages new ideas and approaches.

Cons

Too many layers of management. Managers bring their own friends foster ting nepotism. relocation of jobs overseas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please pay attention to individual contributors and don't get bogged into the management ladder. Upper management must pay attention past the layers of management to the backbone-- individual contributors.
