I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than an year)

Pros

In my experience bonus + salary is pretty tough to match at competitors. Great work/family balance, working remotely is generally allowed (but I never tried to abuse it). In general the work is interesting and furthers my career as a software engineer.

Cons

Sometimes I feel as if my work assignments are not as "meaty" as I would like. At other companies I've had a lot broader scope and responsibility. It's not always the case; I think it varies from group to group and even manager to manager. Promotions can be tough to come by (at least for grade 10 and above) and is largely dictated by your level of visibility and playing politics.

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

    Pros

    good work culture, employee oriented, place to drive innovation, flexible work hours, ready to make change, compensation policies are attractive compare to other competitors.

    Cons

    Too large and sometime takes longer to change, requires a start-up type culture to penetrate the market with new technologies, too big and still have space to reduce more unnecessary fat.
