    I have been working at Cisco Systems for less than a year

    Pros

    Cisco won #1 Workplace in the World and there's a reason for that. Unlike many other companies, they didn't cancel their internship in summer 2020 because of COVID-19 and instead went all in on a virtual internship. There was so much support for interns and it was a very structured program overall, with complete onboarding process, networking events, and many mentorship opportunities. This is a company that cares about every employee and that was readily apparent in the internship itself.

    Cons

    It is a big company with many many moving parts. If you aren't into big companies, Cisco may not be what you're looking for.
