    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time

    Pros

    Cisco offers excellent compensation. It is a dynamic, exciting workplace where industry's top talent are welcome to leave and return, bringing with them more industry knowledge and experience.

    Cons

    The company has a somewhat arbitrary measurement of individuals in order to weed out the bottom feeders; the program works sometimes but also can lead to unexpected and counterproductive results.

    Advice to Management

    People are your number one resource.

    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.
