    Amazing fast-paced environment

    I worked at Cisco Systems

    Pros

    At Cisco, it is almost guaranteed that you will be working on a fun, relevant,and interesting project. There's never a shortage of things that need to get done. It is a fast-paced, competitive environment, but you are surrounded by many intelligent people who are willing to help. They offer very competitive salary and are great about coordinating extracurricular activities.

    Cons

    There are at times disconnects between the many managers and developers. Also, long hours are often necessary as you must always get your work done and abide by sometimes strict deadlines.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Work culture is good - there's a good sense of trust and delegation. Managers strive for work/life balance. In addition, there's a lot of diversity of job functions and roles.

    Cons

    For those coming from smaller companies or companies with less virtual meetings, adapting to the semi-virtual work environment takes time. Even if someone works at HQ, they might spend 70% of their time with virtual teams. Promotions take longer than at many other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
