I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Great work life balance; I work mostly from home, and go into the office when I feel I need to.

Cons

I've been here for 8 years, received wonderful reviews, got some pay raises, but NEVER have been promoted. There is a sea of grade 10s like me who have been the same.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Instead of hiring 3 college grads who need one on one time, and nurturing, why not promote the folks who are actually making a difference in the workplace???

    Former Employee - Network Engineer in San Jose, CA

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time

    Pros

    Good salary; very, very stable company. Rarely needed to go work over the weekend. Overall very 'comfortable'.

    Cons

    Zero social life; not too 'Human' for a "Human Network".

    I didn't agree on some of the liberal stands of the CEO.

    It's almost impossible to grow in it.

    I never really enjoyed my work there.
