    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A lot of opportunities to learn new technology and to be marketable.
    Compenstation and Bonuses are fairly decent.

    Cons

    Upper Management only seems to care about the bottom line. I never felt that they ever cared about the products or the people which made me have no respect for upper management.

    You need to give 110% every day. This is expected. Weekend and holidays, too. The way they handle employee ranking is the same methodology as GE which to me is pretty unfair.

    Advice to Management

    Care about the products and the employees. This will go a long way with morale.
