    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time

    Pros

    Awesome company to work for. Culture of at Cisco is simply amazing. Cisco really believes in empowering people at all levels. I like the diversity of thoughts, people and perspectives. No matter what level you are in the organization, everyone is respected for the value you bring to the table. Cisco often goes out of their way to help employees during difficult times. No one cares for employees like Cisco! People get to work on latest technologies, and different domains. People believe in "Helping each other succeed". Overall fantastic Company to work for!!

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    (1) One stop for all of networking products. You'll find the best folks in industry who have journeyed through the evolution of computer Networking.
    (2) Some of the folks have rich expertise on software development process and Networking solutions and technologies, and are easily approachable. Folks are smart and ready to share knowledge.
    (3) Offers a great work life balance, Good for married people or for those wanting to settle.
    (4) Things are only left for individuals to explore. You have lot of technologies around to explore/learn and gets your hands dirty with. some of the tech-leads and principal engineers are really of great quality.
    (5) Over a period of time, the technology stack and culture can get imbibed into you so much that you'll get comfort-zoned easily, and I saw many people who left Cisco returning back after a few years, after missing the great cisco culture :-).

    Overall Cisco is a great company!

    Cons

    (1) The market correction of salaries for experienced ones is often ignored(though it was brought up in many forums). People who joined 3-4 years back get the same salaries as current college hires/freshers in some of the BUs.
    Cisco India has less stock options/perks.
    (2) Your career growth- in terms of position/title can be bit slow or depends upon your senior management (as in any other company), and in terms of visibility grows depending on how many seniors you have in your team.

    Every company has pros/cons and same thing here.
    Overall Cisco is a great company, having a high reputation, good to have in resume, offers good work life balance and exposure.!
