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

Pros

- Opportunities to move around within the company.

- A large percent of passive employee.

Advice to Management

- Find ways to challenge and motivate passive employee who has been there for way too long and too comfortable in their bubble. There is a large amount of wasted potentials.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, good compensation, flexible work environment/work from home, expansive network of employees around the globe, tough to beat in a sales deal

    Cons

    personal brand management is a must, you must effort to position yourself for your desired job and network with the potential hiring managers, movement up can be difficult as managers tend to stay in their positions and new management openings are externally recruited or have an internal "favored" candidate
