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

Pros

Great benefits, management makes a real effort to help you grow in your career, friendly people, ability to work at home when needed, great culture.

Cons

They talk up the work/life balance but little is done to see that anyone actually has it. In fact the culture is such that working 24/7 is expected.

    Pros

    Really care about the growth and development of the Employee. The company offers good health care, benefit, and retirement plan for the employee.

    Cons

    Some departments have a shortage of human resources. Sometimes employee needs to handle a lot of projects at the same time and need to work long hours in order to complete the assignment.

    Advice to Management

    the productivity of the organization will improve if all the departments have a clear picture of all the functional sectors.

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

    Pros

    Stable company and position
    Work life balance
    Work from home

    Cons

    Don't Care
    Lack of Benefits
    Big Company (You're a Cog in the Machine)
    Forget being an individual
    New ideas are frowned upon
    Input that is seen as negative is looked down upon
    People at Cisco like to pat themselves on the back for every little thing they do correctly. Never mind addressing the real problems that the company faces.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the way things used to be. 3-4 years ago things were great. Now I feel like the company has lost it's way.
