    A well managed "large company" with a slightly over-competitive and over-empowered culture.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - State of the art technology enabling Collaboration & working from home
    - Ethical culture coming from Top Management
    - Employees have a high sense of urgency (rare in large organizations)
    - Top Management is high quality and clearly communicates the Cisco vision

    Cons

    - Hot-desking (no individual desk) leading to no "sense of belonging"
    - Excessive use of collaboration, "back-to-back webex calls" starting at 07h30am
    - Overworked/Overstressed staff never available for informal discussions
    - Overcompetitive career-conscious Managers stressing out their staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve employee's feedback mechanism. Anonymous way to report to top management suggestions or issues related to poor middle-management behavior.
