    Pros

    Cisco treats employees well and is a company that is truly having a major impact on the world. We work hard, but there is lots of flexibility.

    Cons

    Like any other large company, executive management is disconnected from the broad employee base. This is particularly disappointing at Cisco because it has become rapidly more acute over the last couple years.

    Advice to Management

    Stay in touch with the people doing the work.

    Pros

    Plenty of good people, decent work/life balance, flexible work schedules, lots of good tools to do your job, particularly collaboration tools.

    Cons

    Very difficult to advance/grow, poor senior management, lots of projects that go nowhere.

    Advice to Management

    Cull some VPs! There are way too many levels of VPs, and many of them are poor. The quality of Chambers' reports has fallen drastically over the last several years.
