I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- good exposure to new developments in the technology domain you are working on
- as i said depending on the team you work for,your manager could be great or a wus. in my case i have a great manager who is very supportive of personal growth.

Cons

- company is extremely cheap.VP's sitting in posh offices make decisions that insist on saving every cent.

Advice to Management

focus on developing great products/solutions that disrupt the landscape instead of showing profits based on saving expenses.

    I worked at Cisco Systems as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great support from my manager and was free to chase projects that I wanted to initiate.
    The people in my team were always willing to help.

    Cons

    Meetings were often held just for the meeting's sake. Not much follow-up and progress from meeting to meeting. Sometimes, I wanted/needed more direction on what to do.
    Too many people worked remotely from home and was hard to get in touch with them.

    Advice to Management

    Review remote work policy.
