I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Good place to learn a lot

Cons

NO growth.Too political and need to be in the "inner" circle to get opportunities to grow.Managers themselves do nothing , but choose whom to keep ,or axe or assign projects.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't get top heavy and fire the Managers who do nothing but draw fat salaries.Give more opportunities for growth and innovate or will become another NORTEL !!!

    Upward movement limited, your management changes very frequently, se's are second class citizens to account managers in both pay and respect. Rolling layoffs every year.
