    A fine company all-around, but the start-up atmosphere has long faded.

    Pros

    -Excellent culture for tolerance and inclusion
    -They work hard to retain employees
    -Strong pay on hire, but incremental increases are far more difficult to secure
    -Leadership is willing to change and evolve the company as necessary for adjusting to economic conditions

    Cons

    -Expect a very corporate environment (think HP and IBM)
    -As a global business entity, "virtual" is the playbook. If you prefer local teams, this isn't your place.
    -Long hours and very hard work are norms. Typically, those who live to work are most successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More investment in identifying and fixing infrastructure issues which hold back the sales force from maximizing opportunity.

    Very good company to work for, but very high workload all the time.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very good company to work with, probably the best networking vendor to with. I don't think any other networking vendor (like Juniper, HP) can give such a great environment to work.

    Cons

    Very high work load all the time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please ensure employees are able to maintain work life balance.
