    Pros

    Work from Home, Good company for trainings, and learning

    Cons

    High level politics, routine lay-off, no criteria for lay-off, now days more US centric, promotions only in you are in a political group. Not any more good company to work for... it is a ice berg...
    no scope for growth if you are hard working....political pressure to share your work with some favourable workers...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You always look your self in the mirror before making any hard decision. You should change the strategy, frequent lay-offs never helped company. You should start considering the employee feedback from exit interviews , instead of loosing good and hard working employees. This year you had lost of at least 50% of hard working people.

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

    Pros

    The Product design and development was so clear as i[senior developer] was literally involved with many stakeholders like Program management, Customer Facing Engineers, Product Test teams etc. Further my duration of stay[4 years] helped me understand in-and-out of the PowerKey Solution. Thus i was able to handle all customer issues as well. Travelled to OCN Shanghai, China and Den,Delhi on Cisco business trips.

    Cons

    Actually the overall time that you spend in Cisco Systems adds to your professional portfolio and increases the experience of how big multinationals work and deliver solutions to client. Thus sometimes, the project management does not give clear roadmaps on the product.
