    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great collaborative culture at Cisco with good people, and strong benefits package. Enjoyed my 3 years there and had the opportunity to do a lot of different types of work.

    Cons

    Despite good performance reviews, I was not given a raise in 3 years of service.Heard of other good performers who had not had increases in a decade of service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raises should be more equitably split among teams.

    Often middle management not able to communicate the scope of a project.
