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

Pros

Flexibility combined with good benefits, good learning scope within the company, Very good Sr Mgmt

Cons

Rewards system for top performers is flawed & demotivating, a lot of politics within first/second line managers & middle mgmt (sr mgmt is good though)

Advice to Management

Identify real top performers and reward them instead of rewarding people who are in good books of first/second line of managers
