I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than a 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.

    Pros

    Innovative and collaborative environment and a very profitable company! Working virtually is accepted culturally.

    Cons

    35%, if not more, are contractors and temps. It's very difficult to get converted to an employee!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focusing on operational excellence.
