    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.
