    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance, flexibility. Ability to take off time to care for young child, aging parent.
    Ability to work across multiple technologies, change groups, roles.

    Cons

    Late working hours with global teams, Extremely slow promotions. The company is good for someone who is not looking for growth but only needs a steady pay check. Upper management positions are mostly filled from outside or through acquisitions.

    Advice to Management

    Cisco is good for lateral moves. Many people choose to leave Cisco to grow. The salaries are below the industry standard. Unless there is a radical change in management, the company will continue to be flat.
