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

Pros

Flexibility of working remotely.........Cisco provides CVO routers and equipment for your home office. With WebEx and your camera you feel connected at all times

Cons

........you feel connected at all times............my job was global so the hours can be long

'collaboration' is excessive. A leader needs to step up an make decisions.

Advice to Management

Make decisions faster!
Don't give your CEO an 80% raise the day before a major employee layoff and say it was because of his past year accomplishments............who were the workers for those accomplishments????

    I have been working at Cisco Systems as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    *They really try and find you a place your interested in
    *You get what you make of it: You can make a serious contribution if you work for it (and land in the right team)
    *They don't pressure you; they know you're still a student and don't even expect their full-time new hires to be productive at all during the amount of time your working
    *They do give you opportunities; all the interns in my department presented work to a vp
    *They hold lots of events for you
    *They give you a housing stipend if you're coming out of state
    *Pairs you with mentor(s)
    *Decent compensation

    Cons

    *They are trying to change this, but its definitely a culture for older people
    *It's huge so there's an aspect of luck to it, but your team may be out of the office most of the time
    *Cisco will lay off entire departments at a time; some interns lost their entire team halfway through and had to be reassigned (this was not only my summer)
    *Traditional office environment, again depends on the team, but in most cases: cubes, cubes everywhere
