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

    Pros

    - A truly flexible working culture. You can work anywhere at anytime- but if they are flexible, you need to be flexible too - Great pay and career opportunities. Cisco always gives you (and encourages) you to try new roles/ paths - Intelligent and passionate people with great vision from VPs/ Execs

    Cons

    Not a con but more of a side note- you get all the above cons but are expected to work hard and give it your all. Another thing I have noticed is there does seem to be a yearly 'restructuring' where quite a few redundancies are made to remove bottom 10%. Then shortly after there will be a mass hiring of new talent (although this may be a positive to remove slackers and keep an energised workforce)

    Pros

    Flexible working, great benefits, good work life balance

    Cons

    Too many reorgs, management changes. Bit more stability and transparency at high level would be good for the company and motivation levels of employee

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

    Pros

    If you love people and technology - Cisco is an excellent place to start, grow and extend into a role. CSAP (Cisco Sales Associate Program) - is a global accelerated program designed for you to learn and propel your career at Cisco. You are given the opportunity to gain professional certifications, travel and create worldwide friendship. This year long program was the perfect way for to start my career at Cisco. Cisco will allow you to move to find a role to suit you and managers are supportive for you progressing in your career path. There is a reason why #lovewhereyouwork and #wearecisco go hand in hand, flexible working is encouraged to help you work how and when suits you, Fun fund is what happens every few months to bond and have fun with your team mates. If people culture is something you are looking for in your career, Cisco is where you will be made to feel at home with a new Cisco Family.

    Cons

    As with any big company; restructuring, politics and change can majorly impact careers but this is not unique to Cisco. Change in technology, change in workplaces will happen in any field this is not something to fear.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time

    Pros

    Good culture Flexible working People are generally supportive and technical team are excellent

    Cons

    Smokes and mirrors commission structure. Finance makes it up as they go along who gets paid what and sticks unachievable targets on high achievers which ultimately demotivates them so the good Sales people leave. Base pay is very low compared to market rate. Lack of defined strategy from Senior Management is leading to confusion in the market
