    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company is filled with innovative, intelligent and creative people. I enjoyed working for a company that is not limited by brick and mortar.

    Leadership understands the power of connection and provides the tools and environment to support collaboration and the ability to "work smart".

     It is fantastic to work in a distributed virtual environment. The model allows people from different countries to participate, and provide valuable contributions to the initiative, project or discussion.

    Cons

    The constant change across the organization can be a challenge.

    Executive Leadership and mid management can be disconnected. This misalignment leads to inconsistent messaging and actions inconsistent with communication.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your employees have to say - not just during the annual meeting. Maintain a healthy pulse on your work force. Don't underestimate the value of the "Voice of Employee"

    Flatten the organization - the bureaucracy limits communication, innovation and impacts progress
