I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

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.

    I worked at Cisco Systems as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Happy people, everyone has fun
    -Cooperative workplace, not cutthroat environment
    -Great opportunities, get a foot in the door and you can go anywhere

    Cons

    -Getting a foot in the door can be difficult, try, try again
    -Can be a little difficult to get into the right spot initially, most people start in basic job, then transfer to right department
    -Some positions can be a little stressful, but most is created by individual, very easy to manage if well equipped

    Advice to Management

    Had some recent bad news in workforce shrinking, but nothing day to day should be affected
