    Pros

    Good Salary, great bonus (if you are Tech Lead or higher), benefits are okay.

    Cons

    Employees and management are very risk adverse and innovation is not commonplace.

    Advice to Management

    There is an old saying that describes the Cisco workplace very well - "Success has many fathers but failure is an orphan." For management: Embrace your failures and learn everything you can from them. Most are never even mentioned again, perhaps for fear that you will get associated with them. When the Flip flopped, you never heard about it again. Linksys was the same story. At the development level there are thousands of examples for every executive level flop, and they are ignored exactly the same way. Accountability starts at the top and when it's absent there, you can't expect the rank and file to act any differently.
