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

Pros

Good pay, benefits are great, awesome technology. Working for an innovative company that's an industry leader is an experience. The conveniences and ways that you are taken care of as an employee are second to none.

Cons

The worst people at this company seem to be bulletproof. Great people go with every layoff while those that make working here a chore seem to last like cockroaches. And work life balance can be nonexistent.

Advice to Management

Working 24x7 does not make someone a better employee. Be open to feedback and listen to your team.
