I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- Many opportunities exist within the company
- Actively networking or seeking a mentor is very, very helpful to find different departments that might suit you - This should be a MUST since there are similar roles in larger or smaller teams that you would never otherwise find
- Stable employment
- Good benefits (medical, dental, ESPP, etc..)

Cons

- Too many reorganizations - 7 different managers in 6.25 years
- Big company dynamics are sometimes tough to deal with or slow things down
- No raise in 6 years

Advice to Management

Fewer reorganizations, please

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, good work culture and transparent policies. Flexible work practices.

    Too much restructuring taking place. Not the most challenging place to work in general but some business units do cutting edge stuff.

    Advice to Management

    Stop acquiring companies and laying off people at the same time.
