    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    flexibility, 401K matching, health insurance

    Cons

    bad management, impersonal, not so competitive pay, have to pay for the gym, crappy food at cafeteria

    Advice to Management

    Get more involved in company's initiatives. Managers don't seem involved in what's happening outside their group. No need to be so isolated from the rest of the company


  2. "Large-company feel, mediocre pay but quite a stable place to work and make a career."

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very intelligent people work in the DCSTG, there's a lot to learn from working with them.

    Cons

    Employee body is not very diverse, I found it more difficult to find friends than I have elsewhere. Workplace isn't especially exciting or interesting. Cubes have high walls, muted colors and hospital lights. Compensation isn't as good for comparable positions elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the height of the cube walls so you can see people while you're working, switch to some warmer florescent lights (those must exist?).
