I have been working at Cisco Systems India full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The work culture driven by mid- and lower management is extremely good & healthy. They are very supportive of employees' career growth, work-life balance and project timelines. There are silos which work in an extremely aggressive start-up mode (with their own benefits), but this is more an exception than the norm. The flexibility given to employees in terms of telecommuting and work-from-home are very encouraging - cab services, VPN on laptops, home broadband reimbursement etc.

The Cisco India campus has blossomed over time into a nice cocoon of sorts. It has multiple food cafeterias, a big health centre, a state-of-the-art medical centre and several games / sports facilities (basketball, badminton, cricket, table-tennis, carrom, Foosball, gaming arcades, massage chairs)!! The company has a great healthcare plan for employees and their families, including free annual health checkups.

Cons

Even though the management harps about Innovation from India, some groups / teams are working on maintenance-only projects.

If you're a programmer who loves to work on bleeding-edge technologies and likes (re-)designing entire new products, this may seem a boring place. Lots of Cisco's products work on legacy technologies and it is impossible to re-write them when they earn billions of dollars for the company.
