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

    Pros

    Cisco is a good Blue Chip technology company. It provides a lot of stability and is solidly profitable and investing in new areas.

    Cons

    Most of its profits are from heritage products that are facing tougher competition. The company needs to find the next generation of products (and profits) that will continue to support the lifestyle of the past.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that the company is more like IBM than a startup.

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

    Pros

    Mobile working location. No need to go to office everyday. Good existing system to monitor key index or metrics for business performance.

    Cons

    Overload and working overtime is very normal at Cisco. Expect poor work life balance after on board. A bit political in the company which means you need to clear understand your R&R and not touch others territory.
