    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with.
    Good products

    Cons

    Growth in the networking market is not as fast as it used to be.
    It seems like restructures and consequently lay offs have become an annual thing.
    The company is not as innovative and agile as it once was.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees more. Don't be scared to take calculated risks and try new business approaches or new things in general. Let the emotes help. Breakdown the layers of management between the execs and the individual contributors. There are too many layers.
