    Pros

    - Flexible
    - Competitive pay
    - Everyone was very open and welcoming. I networked and had lunch with a lot of people.
    - Treated us like we were a true member of the team.

    Cons

    - Cisco implements a lot of virtual meetings. Sometimes it was hard to really get managers to sit down with you one on one. This is because they were either working remotely or were completely booked with meetings.
    - It was too easy to have an entire day of tele-presence meetings. Sometimes I felt that multiple weekly meetings could have been condensed into 1 longer meeting.

    Advice to Management

    - Maybe try to implement a sort of "rotation" program so interns (especially MBA interns) can see the kind of project going on in other divisions.

  2. One of the great company to work for
