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

Pros

Pockets of good, interesting and challenging work. Nice gym, cafes are healthy.

Cons

Certainly not better than other companies in the valley in terms stability, morale, compensation, or benefits. Not a bad company for 3-5 years...if you are there longer than that you are under paid and they would rather let you walk. Politics has an impact on day-to-day work. Managers are hit and miss, and with all the turnover, mostly

Advice to Management

Time for a bold investment in your human capital.

    Pros

    Great place to gain experience and knowledge.

    Slow to move. Typical big company bureaucracy to get anything done.

    Advice to Management

    Be focused, be nimble and move fast. It's OK to not make everyone happy, but move fast and make quick decisive decisions. Don't be extreme but create a little bit of culture where you either move up or move out (keep people on their toes)
