I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Cisco is a good company with lot of benefits. Flexible work option adds to the work life balance. Lot of opportunities available to move within company. You can work in cutting edge technology if you are lucky to land up in a good team and an high visibilty projects.

Cons

Very difficult to get sustained amount of challenging work and career progression. You can find people across all spectrums. Extremely smart people and survivors who are contended to . Too much processes hinders productivity. Typical big company culture, where you can hide yourself behind non performance and still get away doing bare minimum. Regular layoffs over the last few years makes people insecure.

Advice to Management

Too top heavy management, management needs to create more job related trainings. Improve interview standards.
