    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Started working at Cisco out of college about a year ago. Great company to work for - a ton of resources and really love the team atmosphere. Cisco is definitely coming back from the layoffs/re-orgs 2-3 years ago.

    Cons

    Every large company has their political problems but overall, Cisco is one heck of a company to work for, especially out of college

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing and love the focus on the University Program!
