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

Pros

Very good pay and benefits. Wide and competitive product portfolio. Cisco has strong R&D and acquisition teams. Significant opportunity for advancement. Cisco has many good people and is an ethical company. Management does the right thing for the Cisco's business, customers and the workers most of the time.

Cons

Sometimes Cisco's internal processes makes it hard to get something done for our customers. Too much "Red Tape". This issue is being addressed by management but it can't be solved quick enough.

Advice to Management

Streamline internal processes and tools.
