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

Pros

Focus on customer success.
Leading edge, well funded high technology company.
Many large scale, complex and global projects.
Fast pace, challenging and many career growth opportunities.

Cons

Decisions by committee.
Layoffs still occuring annually (as of July 2012).
The fun is gone due to global economic crisis.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great work life balance and Rey good compensation package

    Cons

    Too many recurring layoffs. Managers moved to care more about Jon security than to care about the well being of the company and share holders. Growth significantly slowed down hence much less opportunities to be promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Clean the fats in a big one sharp cut not buy laying off 2%. Clean the bottom 5% before the 2% layoff. Open serious lines of communications to the individual contributors they can tell you clearly where are the inefficiencies...
