I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

If you like sustaining work rebranded as development work and red tape then this this is the company for you.

Cons

A large percentage of all Cisco jobs will be non US jobs in a few years if the current trend continues.

Advice to Management

Please do away with grades 11 and 12 this job function has become completely useless and is holding Cisco in the past.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy the people and the collaboration at the company. The compensation and benefits are above par and the work life balance is pretty good.

    Cons

    Extremely hard to change anything due to the layered politics at the company. Unless you can make a change in the 100M range no one really bats an eye.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate clearly to the employees. My time at Cisco has seen three layoffs and the constant lack of clear communication to the lower levels has astounded me.
