I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

The quality of the people, integrity and business ethics and work/life balance.
Although there are fewer opportunities for upward mobility, lateral movement is very common and there are a broad range of possibilities.

Cons

Beyond grade 10 or eleven 11 Upward mobility is much more difficult and politics are intense.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cisco is unnecessarily complex in many areas. Need to focus on simplification.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is great. Technical advancement is is up to the engineer. Training in any technology is unlimited. Have to support to set your direction for your career.

    Cons

    Large corporate environment with the normal politics for getting things done. Most management decisions are slower to get response than in the early days.
