    Pros

    Cisco is the number #1 networking company. There are a lot of thing to learn on the cutting edge technology.

    Cisco does not pay salary as high as its peers. Healthcare cost contribution is also high. Long commute to work for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should create more fun thing for employee like having more department picnics, group outing, bring children to work day ...etc.
