    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Cisco is employee and customer focused
    - this has been brought our even more so in the pandemic with SLT regular checkins, commitment to staff, commitment to customers, flexibility for customers and encouragement for staff to get involved in local causes to help.
    - approachable management with clear direction
    - flexible working was supported prior to the pandemic but even more so during and expected to be after
    - employee wealthfare is pivotal and programs support this
    - relevant technology but delivered with a focus on the customer outcomes and how that technology enables, not simply about selling "a widget"
    - lines of accountability and responsibility
    - opportunity to progress

    Cons

    - the IT industry is one of constant change, driven by customer demand and technology - Cisco has to change and mould to be aligned, so to some respects change is a constant
