    I have been working at Cisco Systems India full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance is too good. You have ample time to improvise yourself.
    Technical growth for an individual is satisfactory.
    Good salary package for entry level employees though hiring is freezed now.
    Variety of Networking & Packet Core solutions available which can satisfy even all the top tier service providers.

    Cons

    Long wait for compensation/promotion & bonus is frustrating.
    Decisions taken by top level management are not futuristic.
    Frequent layoffs make this an unsafe place to work at.
    Too much of company process to be followed while working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Frequent Layoffs at Cisco makes the employees feel that they are not in safe hands.
    Adding on it, employees are not in a state of mind to contribute with complete potential.
    Management should try to retain the employees as much as possible.

    I worked at Cisco Systems India full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    An extremely enriching experience for freshers and for people with experience between 3 to 15 years. The market gets to know you and you have a brand in the market - depends on how you maintain the same +ve or -ve.

    Cons

    It gets crazy and could make you easily sucked up in a way that you forget your essence of life...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Performance Reviews need to be holistically taken and not left to the sole discretion of the immediate Manager.
