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

Pros

Great IT infrastructure
Great on-line tools to help with every area of your job
People are always willing to help and go above and beyond

Cons

Large bureaucracy can tend to delay decision making longer than normal
Seems like there was a re-org at the end of every fiscal year
Had troubles figuring out their core competencies. I think they finally have it right.

Advice to Management

Focus on the core competency. Stress accountability at every level of the organization.
