    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

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

    Pros

    Best thing about working at CISCO is you get to work closely on network devices and one get multiple sources to learn anything and everything. Right from mentor to manager all are always available to guide you and if you show your interest in the work assigned and would like to work on other feature as well they are always supportive.

    Cons

    They don't convert Co-Op into FULL TIME :(

    Advice to Management

    Sincere advice to management , CISCO is almost all network engineers dream company (Mine for sure) . when CISCO hires a CO-OP give them an opportunity to understand CISCO work and culture and get tuned to it then how can you just loose them after giving almost 1 year of work experience.Please do think about it.
