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

    Pros

    Lots of change. In my 15 years, I've never been bored. The admin community is strong, and there are plenty of opportunities to enhance your career.

    Cons

    Lots of change. New technology doesn't always scale properly and there are bugs to work through, causing a lot of frustration in getting your job done. Some processes take too many steps to complete. Politics come and go, although I'm sure that's the same with any other company. Hiring admins thru agencies (budget purposes) makes it challenging for FTEs to find a new position.

    Advice to Management

    Stay in touch with your workforce.

    - Flexible work hours. You can work from anywhere.
    - 401K, HR benefits.

    Cons

    - No Career development.
    - It's difficult to move up, or get a raise or promotion. Managers don't have enough budget to promote their people.

    Advice to Management

    - It's time to take a look at the internal people before looking outside Cisco.
