    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    While Cisco does expect a lot from its employees, I am extremely impressed with its compensation and work life balance. I have seen Cisco do extraordinary things for my coworkers when they absolutely need it the most. Makes me very proud...

    Cons

    I struggle to find a negative, but If you are more comfortable with a small organization, then Cisco isn't the place for you.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Some great people still work here, but many are leaving

    Cons

    Once you reach a level of experienced individual contributor there is nowhere else to go. Focus is on bringing in outside folks to dazzle the business but really its just smoke and mirrors. There are some great people aching to be recognized and getting a bit fed up with the corporate musical chairs. Having been here almost 10 years I have never had a manager with more experience than me in our subject matter area - I don't even want to think about how many people I've trained to go on to bigger roles while I sit here as a SR. SME

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes, your worker bee's have had it with the lack of support guidance and development
