    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    flexibility in terms of working from home. also offers great tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    layoffs every 2 years or so (at least the time I was there). managers don't have the right skill set to manage people. most of the managers there can seriously use an ESL class as their communication skills are extremely poor.

    Advice to Management

    do not promote people who are your friends. go for the right talent.

    Lots of freedom. Good Compensation and Benefits.

    Poor workers stay around and cause more work for the good workers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking advantage of hard working employees and fire the poor performers so that you can hire better workers and load share better.
