I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Work hard, play hard
Recognize individual talent
Hire smart people

Cons

Slow to adapt Agile development methods
Focus more on enterprise than consumers
Sale of Linksys was a bad call - they may have not generated as much revenue as other parts of company, but it was good for the company's overall reputation

Advice to Management

Reconsider consumer focused business - it may not generate as much revenue as enterprise-focused opportunities but it offers an inexpensive way to keep the company in the hearts and minds of consumers.
