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

    Pros

    Decent (but by no means lavish) benefits, some great smart people to work with.

    Cons

    Executives are out of touch with their employees, partners, and customers. It's a company that's not really growing, and the stock price reflects that. It depends on acquisitions for innovation. Layoffs are now an annual tradition, so for many people job "stability" is a myth--but you still have all the challenges of working at a huge company.

    Advice to Management

    Get out and visit other buildings once in a while.
