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

    Pros

    The best thing going is the ability to telecommute (because all of my co-workers are working in a different time zone in another country). :-(

    Cons

    Threats of layoffs. Lots of outsourcing to India. Inexperienced managers. Lots of reorganizations. No clear direction.

    Advice to Management

    Bring the jobs back to the U.S. and hire talented people, not just warm bodies with no experience.

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

    Pros

    Good work life balance, some great team members.

    Cons

    Management is horribly self-service and holds grudges. No internal opportunities. Almost 4 years without a raise, promo, or cost of living increase.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up...
