Pros

1. If you are working in the right division on the right job you are good.

3. Brand Name

Cons

1. Your growth is directly proportional to the number of people you know inside Cisco.
2. Most managers are very technical and resolve your technical issues if you are stuck but that stops there, people skills are negligible to Zero with most.
3. Size of the company is a problem, you are just another employee in the 70k folks inside, some employee services such as Immigration take your service request for granted.

Advice to Management

Take care of the employees, Train managers candidates well before promoting them.
