I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

1. Execution focused organization. Decent work-life balance.
2. Relationship building is key to be successful - truly the human network at play!
3. Employee friendly culture. Great benefits.

Cons

1. A bit of top-down decision making. The firms' large size forces senior execs to bet only on mainstream trends (a liability for people who want fast moving careers).
2. Lot of presentation & meetings, in the name of collaboration, kills productivity compared to working in a startup/mid-size firm.
