I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great company, great technology, great people.

Huge opportunity to get exposure to some of the most innovative and fast paced technology in the industry.

Cons

Not the startup or growth technology company that it once was.
Culture has changed over the years.
Career and pay advancement is tough. As is with most large companies, there is too much red tape and not enough common sense.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Use common sense over processes and procedures.
Focus on core competencies and listen to your employees (especially sales teams) when they tell you certain one off products are not up to par.

    I worked at Cisco Systems as a contractor (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.
