I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Employee friendly, with on-site gymnasium, child care and health center. Even though one has to work 10+ hours a day on average in engineering to get the work done, work hours being flexible helps a lot for families with kids. Lot of internal training classes for technical and professional skilll development, available to most people in the company.

Cons

Cisco's innovation in the last ten years has been limited to data networking only. Limited success in penetrating consumer market.

    Pros

    You will be compensated well and likely work with some good people who care about the success of the organization. There are talented people in the organization.

    Cons

    The leadership team is poorly organized and constantly stepping all over each other. The company is going through, and has been for quite some time, an identity crisis.
