I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Cisco is the number #1 networking company. There are a lot of thing to learn on the cutting edge technology.

Cons

Cisco does not pay salary as high as its peers. Healthcare cost contribution is also high. Long commute to work for me.

Advice to Management

Management should create more fun thing for employee like having more department picnics, group outing, bring children to work day ...etc.

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

    Pros

    Technology is solid; products are everywhere

    Cons

    Most midlevel managers are out of touch with reality. The use of buzzwords and in vogue phrases seem to be a substitute for true business acumen.

    Advice to Management

    You have lost focus on the most important thing --- the customer.
