Pros

Work on cutting edge solutions, 360 degree feedback. Good pay and a very Good Bonus. Last but not the least internal movement across different technologies is a plus.

Cons

Skipping increments quiet often and some managers playing politics, though its everywhere. Here its more because some BU's are acquired companies and they still have their mentality.

Advice to Management

Politics plays spoilsport, if not a wonderful place

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

    Pros

    Pay was ok for a while!

    Cons

    All based on managing people below you to work their asses off
    Only interested in young Yes men
    Anyone with good innovative ideas is "moved on"
    Stock price is very poor but the market are correct. This is a stagnant company!

    Advice to Management

    Stop fooling each other that cIsco is a great place to work.
    Get rid of the middle layer of brown noses who do very little work except manage their own career.
    Total revamp required from the top down!

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

    Pros

    Great place to work, A large corporate with very good benefits.

    Cons

    Small cog in a big machine - middle management are under motivated and over payed. Thus lack the dedication required to support your personal career growth. The work life balance doesn't exsist for many, but this is compounded by the fact that others in the same teams and roles get away with doing very little, and it is never picked up by management.

    Advice to Management

    Discussions with management end with management telling what they think you want to hear and then do nothing to back it up over the next cycle. Move middle management around - especially in the support roles.
