    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I like the fact I can work from home. I like that Cisco wants us to have a family life and not just a working life.

    Cons

    If your a contractor you are stuck! there's no growth opportunities even though they claim there is.They lose out on a lot of talented internal workers because the company is so big and rather than empowering a contractor that is already here they look for externally talent.

    Advice to Management

    Cisco has some of the best talented people already working for you. Instead of promoting jobs externally look within your own contractors that are already here. It's easier for me to quit and be considered at Cisco than being a contractor trying to get that full time job. Contractors have talent we just aren't given the chance or our bosses aren't given the reqs to hire us.
