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

Pros

It has a very open culture and takes care of it's employees well. Most of the time work ethics and responsibility taken by employees are good

Cons

Off late, open culture is going away, by virtue of cisco allowing it's acquired companies to giving a complete free hand and that has destroyed some of the good DNA of Cisco. Most of the time, the head of these acquired companies and it's VPs manipulate things just under the nose of Cisco's heads just for their personal growth and destroy the team and later run away to other companies.

Advice to Management

Let there be Cisco's DNA, principles and work ethics be made mandatory to acquired companies and it's heads and VPs and keep a tab on it.

    I worked at Cisco Systems as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people I worked with were very friendly and quick to help. The campus was great and offered a variety of activities outside of the cubicle.

    Cons

    I was only an intern, but I was given little to no attention. I felt like all the tasks given to me were trivial and I was only there to fill in a quota. The environment itself is very depressing: a sea of grey cubicles and dim lighting makes it very difficult to be excited about your job.

    Advice to Management

    Better interaction with interns is crucial if you want to retain any of them. A little lighting goes a long way.
