    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great customer experience. Bleeding edge technology

    Cons

    They get rid of long time employees and outsource their work to India and Costa Rica. The customer support suffers and the customer satisfaction plummets and all they care about is the bottom line. There is no loyalty anymore. They do not care about the employee or the customer. It is all about metrics. Take a case close a case.

    Advice to Management

    Respect and appreciate your AMERICAN born work force

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities. Enormous customer base. Good perks and salaries. Relatively better than other companies of this size. Still works very closely with customers and therefore provides a great way to learn about actual customer issues from all parts of the organization (if one is in the right organization).

    Cons

    Big company. Fewer pockets of no-nonsense culture and work focus. Slow moving. Smart folks are leaving since it is no longer the company to work for (was so for about a decade). Lots of duplicated effort which hinders progress. Conflicting Business Unit goals cause misery to all around.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce company size by 30%. Double the management to team ratios at all levels.
