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

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, job rotations, many areas to specialize in, job stability, smart people. Good company culture,

    Cons

    Corporate politics, many layers of middle management, minimal opportunities for career advancement once you reach a certain point since many people are competing to crack into management level. continually reducing head count and increasing workloads. Some people are impossible to please, and that goes through many teams and many layers of management. Appearances of doing good work, doing more work, working long hours are more respected then well thought out ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Workspace has too many people crammed into some buildings. Many projects are born from pet projects and do not care about the outcome / benefit involved.

    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 Some buildings are outdated.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.
