    I have been working at Cisco Systems (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been working in this company for 10+ years in India Site. I have found that this company adopts best industry standards when it comes to software development process or employee care. It provides you the choice on how you want to contribute yourself. I have seen colleagues who been rightly rewarded with promotions and higher grades when they give exemplary contributions. It pays as you perform without any hindrance. You can choose to grow slow and steady while giving enough time to your family. In other words company allows you to grow as you desire. One another good things is that this company provides good transport service for its employees.

    Cons

    On some areas I feel India site is not having R&D opportunity in latest technologies.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    CULTURE
    -------------
    Strong and evolving, focused on engineering quality and outcomes

    TECH
    --------
    On-premise codebases suffer due to legacy, but command a massive customer base and hence continuously refactored and churned with new features. High focus on engineering practices, quality and automation. Solid architectures.

    Cloud services and components are new, employ relatively latest paradigms, but lack any significant customer base.

    LEADERSHIP
    -----------------
    Passionate senior management that puts the interests of the org and people above all else. Encourages feedback, ideas and initiatives. Ready to experiment with people, processes and perspectives.

    ORG STRUCTURE
    ------------------------
    Relatively flat and transparent, dynamic structures that rapidly evolve to solve problems.

    ENGINEERS
    ----------------
    Rock-solid technical leaders, a good percentage of expertise among engineers makes this a good place to work and learn.

    INNOVATION
    ------------------
    General impetus and encouragement to any innovation at all levels. Hacking is highly encouraged.

    FUN + BENEFITS
    ----------------------
    Engineers get to use best in hardware, equipments and infrastructure
    Relaxed, fun and alive work atmosphere while also being super-intense and engaging
    Amazing, huge campus here in Bangalore

    Cons

    Lack of vision at product management - On one hand, the on-premise portfolio is struggling to re-invent and be competitive among newly emerging competition. On the other hand, the cloud strategy and services have turned out to be unimpressive, at least until now. Product Management at all levels is unable to figure this out yet.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    First thing comes to my mind about this group : Always do the right thing to Customers which is evident in the way the backlog gets prioritised, the leadership works and the way teams interact with Customers & Partners.

    Some of the Pros I see : Emphasis on quality, freedom for teams/individuals to balance tactical tasks Vs innovation, ability to raise issues to senior management (with no fear or retribution), the 360 view of everything we do (debates leading to decision).

    Overall : Great Products, Awesome Collaboration, Nice team, Amazing Passion all driven by the underlying practice!

    Cons

    None I see at the moment!
