I have been working at Cisco Systems as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

You work with some of the smartest people in networking, many CCIEs, everyone is usually willing to help you. The company treats co-ops pretty well. They pay for co-ops to get their CCNA.

Cons

Management for the co-ops could greatly improve.

    Pros

    opportunities to transfer within company based on your interest and skill set. Career transition and technology learning is available for people who have passion and are willing to learn.

    Cons

    Well established company with relative mature technologies and business model, the opportunity to climb the corporate ladder is not easy. The culture has changed significantly due to the lack of diversity mid-level management layer.

    Advice to Management

    provide the position rotation opportunity to retain the talent
