    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It is great to be able to work from home and maintain a relatively flexible schedule.

    Cons

    The marketing organization at Cisco is one of the most political organizations I have ever worked in. There is a constant land grab going on, people crowing about work they did that is simply their day job. Politics are commonplace, especially in large organizations, but this is ridiculous and not exactly a motivator. Also, make sure you negotiate well in terms of your incoming salary because raises are non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit talking out of both sides of your mouth, take care of your people.
