    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Each can get as much work as he is willing, comfortable and capable of taking up.
    - No work pressure.
    - Very good work life balance.
    - Very flexible (Work From Home, flexible timings of work hours, etc.)

    Cons

    - Time based promotion pattern. Need to spend a fixed amount of time at a grade irrespective of how well you perform before you are eligible for a promotion.
    - Slow growth.
    - Most quality work is done in the HQ at San Jose.

    Advice to Management

    The stress on the number of years spent at a level should be decreased. There need to be initiatives to promote people based on performance and talent more than the duration spent in the job.

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cisco is a great place to work where you'll get chance to work with great people around you.
    Work pressure is not so high for most of the projects here

    Cons

    Salary hike may be one cons. Cisco usually offers good salary, but hikes were a bit of concern during recession time. I hope it's improved now.
