    Dominant company but executives are completely out of touch while being richly rewarded.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent (but by no means lavish) benefits, some great smart people to work with.

    Cons

    Executives are out of touch with their employees, partners, and customers. It's a company that's not really growing, and the stock price reflects that. It depends on acquisitions for innovation. Layoffs are now an annual tradition, so for many people job "stability" is a myth--but you still have all the challenges of working at a huge company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out and visit other buildings once in a while.

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (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.
