Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Easy pace
International presence
Can work in different offices if you like to move around or travel overseas and have to work remotely.
Career opportunities
Create severance packages for people who get laid off

Cons

Hard to get promoted though there are many internal opportunities
A little bureaucratic
Lots of senior folks. If you like young faces, this is probably not the company for you. Senior doesn't mean good engineering either. They can be slow to adapt to new technology.
Doesn't pay well
