    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Opportunity (worked in Mfg, Eng, and Finance), highly-recognized brand, supportive of continued education (MS, MBA, etc.), dominant positions in most markets.

    Cons

    You really need to proactively manage your career here. B/c this is a big company, you can get lost in the shuffle quite easily. As a company, we are in the $40B/year range, so only time will tell if Cisco can bust through that barrier or fizzle.
