Pros

Relaxed environment, people are great and it is enjoyable. Cisco make great use of the technology they have (WebEx, telepresence etc) which makes working with global colleagues a breeze.

Cons

Big company to work for and you feel like just another statistic, just someone on the payroll. Training is encouraged, but only if it directly helps your department, not so much about you its about making the department money.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want loyal employees, and employees who actually WANT to come into work, then think about the individual and what we want.
