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

    Pros

    Takes excellent care of terminal employees. Good salary and decent benefits, but no raises to account for increasingly more expensive benefits. Excellent diversity employee population.

    Cons

    Very constrained environment today. Limited growth options due to excessive cost control. Poor innovation lifecycle management. Internal competition of products and lack of long-term resolve to address key issues, such as network management.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify the product lines and focus like Apple did in 1997.
