    Pros

    big company, a lot of employers, opportunities within the company

    Cons

    you don't get rewarded no matter how hard you try, it's mostly about politics,
    frequent layoffs even after growing profits, they always have to find bottom 5% even if all the team members tried hard. nonsense company

    Advice to Management

    wake up, stop bullshitting

    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 Management

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