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

    Pros

    Opportunity to grow. Great perks. Place to start a career.

    Cons

    Decentralized when it comes to acquired entities. So huge that job responsibilities can either be too much or too little due to disorganized programs.

    Advice to Management

    Assimilate acquisitions entirely and move employees to where there is the greatest need.

    Work flexibility. Being able to help with the kids after school activities, and then work after normal hours

    Cons

    Because you can work anytime, the expectation is that you will work all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Old timers are worth the little bit extra.
