I have been working at Cisco Systems as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Great contractor opportunities with flexible schedules. Nice people with what seems to be a good code of conduct amongst employees. Access to most things a full-time employee would get. Very cool technology to work with -- awesome customer base.

Cons

Of course being a contractor you don't get access to their great benefit packages. Sometimes you are left out of info and distribution items in your own group simply because managers look at their "FT reports".

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great work environment, awesome benefits and opportunities to advance in career. Love the culture to do the right thing for your employees and customers.

    Cons

    Would like to see more structured programs on career building and moving around within the company. Also, regular raises would be great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rate teams instead of individuals if you want better results, sometimes people are competing more than collaborating that hinders in the overall growth of the company.
