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

Pros

Great culture for those who are collaborative in nature. Cisco provides lots of support systems to be successful in your work.

Cons

Sometimes it's a sweatshop. Were it not for forced PTO during Christmas, too many people would be working ON Christmas.

Advice to Management

Don't be afraid to make a decision and act. Too much time is wasted trying to make everyone happy. Too many layers of bureaucracy to be effective.
