I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Work with some of the smartest individuals in the industry, the projects are challenging and give you the opportunity to lead and drive the technology direction for your customers.
Have been here less than a year, really enjoying working for the team... Hopefully can maintain this review in the years to come.

Cons

With the latest layoff announcement, people have been put under more pressure to perform (which isn't a bad thing). More project responsibilities have fallen on most people and under the radar to deliver.
I guess it's understandable when the company is going through drastic change. With the recent changes, the company's outlook looks stronger coming into next year.

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

    Pros

    The work life balance and the folks you work with make this an enjoyable place to go to everyday. I also enjoy the organizational culture.

    Cons

    Its very easy to get bogged down in the political politics of a big company. Nothing gets done unless 30 people approve it 45 times leading to slower than normal progress on most anything though I will admit it is getting better.
