Supportive and respectful management. Great technology and effective technical direction leadership. Excellent work-life balance. Recent hires from competitors has provided fresh industy insight and ideas that have been positive overall for Cisco.

    Some business operational challenges/inefficiencies that are now clearly being addressed. Learning to navigate within a large and dynamic company can prove challenging for new hires.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Great contractor opportunities with flexible schedules. Nice people with what seems to be a good code of conduct amongst employees. Access to most things a full-time employee would get. Very cool technology to work with -- awesome customer base.

    Cons

    Of course being a contractor you don't get access to their great benefit packages. Sometimes you are left out of info and distribution items in your own group simply because managers look at their "FT reports".
