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

    Pros

    -Excellent culture for tolerance and inclusion
    -They work hard to retain employees
    -Strong pay on hire, but incremental increases are far more difficult to secure
    -Leadership is willing to change and evolve the company as necessary for adjusting to economic conditions

    Cons

    -Expect a very corporate environment (think HP and IBM)
    -As a global business entity, "virtual" is the playbook. If you prefer local teams, this isn't your place.
    -Long hours and very hard work are norms. Typically, those who live to work are most successful.

    Advice to Management

    More investment in identifying and fixing infrastructure issues which hold back the sales force from maximizing opportunity.
