    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Improved strategy from the top and including intent to improve working conditions.

    Cons

    offshore staffing is replacing USA staffing. In many cases this staffing is not sufficiently trained or not available during USA working or extended working hours. Pressure to work up to 70 hours per week. Not enough lower level process improvement work.

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent team players as well as supportive management. No micro-management, excellent corporate structure and no shortage of intelligent people. Very well respected by clients and industry peers.

    Cons

    Doesn't know what to do with L4-L7 or consumer based products, such as ACE and WAAS, even eCDS. Routing and switching, UCS, are its sweet spot - let the F5's, Riverbed's, Aruba, and others fight it out.

    Advice to Management

    Management rocks !!!
