I have been working at Cisco Systems as a contractor (More than 10 years)

Pros

Cisco is a good place to work. Being a big company, there's lot of opportunities to move around in different areas of business.

Cons

With time the senior management within each department have introduced too many unnecessary processes, feels like you work for govt with lot of red tape.

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

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology, great teammates, involved management, and opportunities to advance in career. You can get as much out of working here as you are willing to invest into it and there are many people to connect with along the way.

    Cons

    The company tries to measure everything, and I mean everything that you do. Some things are not quantifiable but that does not stop Cisco from trying. Some of it brings value and insight but some of it seems futile and redundant.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be agile, continue to identify and reward top contributors, try to improve talent retention by aligning salary and bonus with contribution and ability.
