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

Pros

The best part of working for a networking giant is that our network connects into our homes so working from home or the office can feel the same. The benefits are not bad but have slowly degraded over the years. And the salary seems to be tops for the Austin area.

Cons

I have not had a raise in 4 years and there is always the fear of being affected by a layoff in the future. There are no electric car hookups at the offices in Austin.

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some amazing people to work with accompanied with flexible working environment and generous benefits.

    Cons

    Lost its focus on their employees over the years. Work-Life balance suffers at times. Has become extremely political which has effected the ability to advance in position.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of laying off the people who actually get work done, consider shedding all the excessive management teams(Directors, VP's, Sr VP's)
