I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Competitive salary and great benefits. Large reputable company. Depending on what product you work on, you will have all the tools and resources needed to perform well in your job. Will send you to training if it helps.

Cons

A little unorganized. Management doesn't seem to be working that hard to retain talent. Some buildings are outdated. Company culture needs to work on becoming more helpful.

Advice to Management

Try hard to retain talent! Great people are leaving everyday to work at companies that show more care and attention to its employees.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Contracting pay is above average and contracts can go on for years. Once you've been employed at Cisco, chances of being able to always find work there is very good.

    Cons

    No overtime paid despite pressures to often work over 40 hrs/wk. Very "corporate" environment. Getting a full time job is not likely and there is a large gap between contractor wages and full time, even with benefits included.

    Advice to Management

    Often projects are taken on that really have no intrinsic value to the company or customer. Pay attention to the amount of money being wasted on just trying to look busy, rather than productive
