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

    Pros

    very experienced in business, sales dominant culture
    competitive compensation, good benefits

    Cons

    Too many managers. All things follow all kinds of strict process, lacking of flexibility and can't keep top talent in some situations. Managers don't spend time on figuring out who make great contributions to the company, instead, they put most of their time on political things. People who gets promotion usually aren't a result of how much contribution he/she made, sometimes it is purely because his/her managers win in a political war...

    Advice to Management

    cut at least 50% management people, treat people better who really work on projects
