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

Pros

Excellent culture of freedom and empowerment, great people, great work. One man being at the helm has obviously helped largely retain focus on the company's goals. As an employer, Cisco provides so many opportunities to learn and challenge oneself! Truly satisfying if you are looking for stability and growth too .

Cons

Not the best paymaster. Cisco has grown in size and a result slowed down over the years and there's more "governance" now than before, some of it which seems like red tape

Advice to Management

Do not compromise on hiring standards and bring in inadequately skilled people

    Former Employee - Multitude of Different Roles At the Country and Regional Level

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - recognized leader in the networking space
    - strong brand built over the past decade+ aided by strong marketing
    - operated in largely an open and inclusive culture
    - enjoyed being part of the growth in the APAC region and had the opportunity to work with some of the most talented individuals in the industry

    Cons

    As part of the growth (organic and inorganic), it also become over-bloated and over time lost a good degree of agility; and also focus.

    Advice to Management

    Senior leadership - Key your ears to ground, feel the pulse and act.
