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

    Pros

    Cisco is a workplace filled with thoughtful, intelligent co-workers. The corporate culture emphasizes integrity, productivity, and collaboration. People are rewarded based on individual, team, and organizational effectiveness and, ultimately, results. Despite the mammoth size of Cisco, people are encouraged to experiment and innovate.

    Cons

    The sheer size of Cisco sometimes results in tricky cross-functional dynamics. The management team has tried to address that with a variety of approaches, most famously with the management "counsels." There have been times when this uncertain environment has led to the company being influenced to take unexpected product diversions.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to what the company does best -- large/mid-market networking-based technologies and services. Be honest with the employee base. Cisco is in the business of making money. It's not a family. Don't pretend it is. People will appreciate the straight talk.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is good, and compensation is decent.

    No growth opportunities and benefits get worse every year.

    Advice to Management

    Please spend more on R&D, so Cisco doesn't become a dinosaur.
