    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    very good salary, benefits. work is not that difficult and you can often create your own job within a certain structure.

    Cons

    management sucks. they do not hire the most effective leadership team, rather promote "friends" and those that play the game. the restructure EVERY SINGLE YEAR.. then spend 6 months trying to figure out the next structure, which only gives them about 50% productivity or less.. very frustrating

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    create a system to identify leadership talent, TRAIN THEM and then promote the best, not the best friends. STOP reorging all the time!
