    Pros

    Culture promotes an environment where you don't have to feel awkward reaching out to more experienced people or seeking input on problems.

    There is great camaraderie at all levels, people are friendly and helpful.

    Compensation and benefits are great but more importantly, Cisco recognize the importance employee satisfaction. Interactions with Cisco feel human and personal.

    Mobility is a reality here, the workforce and teams are global but work seamlessly.

    The company values are very simple - to put it briefly, they focus on integrity and respect.

    Highly recommended!

    Cons

    I can't think of any.

    Advice to Management

    Move faster and don't be afraid to break things. Upset the industry a little more.
