No ego, little politics, great work-life balance - at the cost of low-energy environment.

I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than an year)

Pros

I like how my colleagues are down-to-earth, in a real way. I interviewed with hot industry names and was really put-off by the arrogance of the people I've met. The work-life balance is also very good. The compensation is competitive with most of the top names in the market. Also, management is experienced and good to learn from.

Cons

It's an older culture. People are not very driven. The company isn't really innovating. The benefits are good, not amazing - the ESPP program, for example, is pretty good for a corporate.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should create special tracks for younger employees.
