I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (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.
