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

    Pros

    Good work life balance
    Great opportunity to internally rotate and learn various functions within the same company
    Very serious about Ethics
    Networking with people is very much encouraged and mutual help is given
    Top Management is well connected with individual employees across geographies (through periodic connects called, Cisco Beat)

    Cons

    Being an established and large company, growth appears slow for a large number of employees when compared with smaller companies which are currently in growing stage

    Advice to Management

    Take intentional effort to look at employees stuck in a same grade level for long time to observe what is not working for them and coach/ guide if the employee is to be guided OR fix if anything in the process is not working for this larger general population who is not among the Top Performers
