I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

401K contribution, daycare pre-tax reimbursement, health pre-tax reimbursement, company contribution to education/ training and even grad school. Peers are always happy to help out one another despite their busy schedule. Many folks have the mantra of working hard and efficiently for the greater good of the company.

Cons

silo'd division of business units challenge the ability to create a consistent marketing message. Over the years, lost the benefits of free drinks, yearly company events, family days, and even the tchotchkes. Regular pay increase not consistent across management.

Advice to Management

Enterprise is still where there is lots of revenue but in this economy, expand your horizon and make your message simpler and easier to consume for the mid-market commercial sector.

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

    Pros

    There are a lot of smart, great people at Cisco who have good intentions and work hard. It is very large company so there are ample job opportunities. Compensation and benefits are good.

    Cons

    The company has gotten too large for the current structure. The large number of acquisitions has diluted the once great culture. It has become very difficult to get things done. The company needs an infusion of new, aggressive leadership.
