I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- Many opportunities exist within the company - Actively networking or seeking a mentor is very, very helpful to find different departments that might suit you - This should be a MUST since there are similar roles in larger or smaller teams that you would never otherwise find - Stable employment - Good benefits (medical, dental, ESPP, etc..)

Cons

- Too many reorganizations - 7 different managers in 6.25 years - Big company dynamics are sometimes tough to deal with or slow things down - No raise in 6 years

Advice to Management

Fewer reorganizations, please
