I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Cisco is a good Blue Chip technology company. It provides a lot of stability and is solidly profitable and investing in new areas.

Cons

Most of its profits are from heritage products that are facing tougher competition. The company needs to find the next generation of products (and profits) that will continue to support the lifestyle of the past.

Advice to Management

Recognize that the company is more like IBM than a startup.

    Pros

    Willing to change based on the market needs.

    Cons

    Constant change. No longer a innovator more of a follower

    Advice to Management

    Cut the management. Too many VP's running the org's like their kingdoms.
