    Pros

    You get to work with, and help develop, cutting edge hardware and software technology. The company is well thought of throughout the technology community.

    Cons

    The best jobs are located in San Jose, so if you work at a different location, then you might be stuck in your current job.

    Advice to Management

    Do we really need so many reorganizations? And why are so many high-level executives recruited from outside of Cisco?

    Cisco follows through, yet it supports its employees and lets contractors go when a contract is done

    Pros

    Good resources, opportunities to transfer.

    Cons

    Hard to become an employee

    Advice to Management

    Using a large contractor force is a drawback in the long-run. People work best when their organization invests in them and supports them in the long run.
