I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Compensation (base salary + bonus + stock grants) are higher than most established IT companies. Plenty of internal collaboration technology to enable work from practically anywhere with an Internet connection. Fairly good autonomy as long as you do your job well (setting objectives and achieving them).

Cons

Vision/strategy at exec level is very good though execution is typically slowed by too many layers of management. Career advancement is challenging because 1) company is no longer growing rapidly, and 2) not much attrition at senior levels.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to sharpen focus on execution!
