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

Pros

Schedule flexibility. Depends on the nature of your job, however from my experience, I've been able to achieve a successful career and still be present for the afterschool and in-class activities, sicknesses and other situations where a typical "in-office" 8-5 job would not allow.

Cons

Tyring to achieve a job change within a different organization within the company can be challenging.

Advice to Management

Invest more into the in-house career movement tool

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

    Pros

    This is my first 'real' job out of college - and I can say that the role I was hired into provides the right amount of challenge, as well as the room for growth that anyone could hope for. Working with a team where your opinions/contributions are valued, and expectations set within a reachable limit has helped me grow my own personal career, while pushing the limits of my job description, to the next level.

    Cons

    Sometimes that speed of work could be a bit slower than I would like - but I think that is due to the company being as large as it is. Lots of 'hurry up and wait' with the amount of collaboration my role utilizes.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the budget for R&D to maintain a competitive stance in the Knowledge Management arena.

    Employee focusing on personal growth and financial rewards
