    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    * Lots of opportunity to find additional positions of interest within the company
    * Stable workforce so long as you are not involved in a 'fringe' technology team being phased out
    * Generous opportunity to find other positions if restructuring requires, and generous package in lieu of another position if you so choose

    Cons

    * Slow to move into some newer technologies, though rapidly changing that attitude this past year

    Advice to Management

    Continue to solicite customer and Cisco partner input as to recommended changes to sales and support model to make it easier to do business with Cisco. Listen and continue to provide end to end solutions involving industry standards. Provide more open APIs / SDKs to qualified vendors to expand opportunities for 3rd party companies to integrate seamlessly into the Cisco architecture as new technologies are rapidly rolled out.

    Pros

    Good 1st line managers and good salary/benefits.

    Cons

    Too much organizational hierarchy and red-tape. San Jose headquarter thumbs its noses at other sites. Too difficult to get your opinions heard.

    Advice to Management

    Cisco is stagnating. Bring back the innovation by empowering the technical employees and reduce all the red tapes of upper management.
