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

    Pros

    Flexibility in work hours and ability to work remote. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Incredibly difficult to get quick results. Too many chiefs. Politics still determine who succeeds, not the best performers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being overly collaborative. Make some decisions, be accountable for commitments and move swiftly. There are a lot of smart people at Cisco completely demotivated by the effort it takes to get things done.

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

    Pros

    They've been relatively stable over the long haul, there's plenty of interesting work, and there's a fair amount of opportunity to move around within the company.

    Cons

    Over the years, have treated employees with less respect. Feels like a big company now... not nimble by any stretch, and rather bogged down with process.
