    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Market Leader in the Networking arena
    John Chambers - a visionary leader helping the company stay ahead of competition

    Cons

    Company has grown very large, not as nimble like some of thier smaller competitors
    Very slow stock price growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The "council" format of management was not working very well, as it added a lot of confusion trickling down to the rank and file

    I worked at Cisco Systems as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Cisco Systems is a well-run company, with reasonable compensation, fair and productive reviews, and fairly good morale. Problems are fairly quickly addressed, and overall management is quite good.

    Cons

    The company is so large that it's easy to become type-cast into doing a single thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See if you can drum up the excitement of 1999.
