    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time

    Pros

    Starent Network was an exciting, energetic and rewarding place to work for. The people were extremely dedicated, management was approachable and gave a real sense of leadership and focus.

    Cons

    Following the Cisco Acquisition of Starent, the "family" feeling and the "Startup mentality" that I like in the job started slowly to change. The company felt less nimble and personal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Best of luck to those who survived the 2 year mark!
