I worked at Cisco Systems as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

It was a very friendly environment in general and you get to work with their product not on some side project. They also had good programs for interns throughout the summer and kept us very engaged.

Cons

They have a poor retention policy for interns and rarely recall interns from previous years or give them full time offers.

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

    Pros

    Opportunities to technical learning is excellent.

    Cons

    Career advancement is very limited as the company is too big, and middle managers are insecure about their own jobs, thereby preventing subordinates from advancing over them.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the development of the people (subordinates) that will help you advance in your own career, and not to be afraid to allow them to excel in their own career. Not everyone will step over you!!
