    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time

    Pros

    Excellent work environment. An employee can choose to apply for internal job postings without informing his/her reporting manager. This opens up opportunities for horizontal movement.

    Cons

    Very few new products or technologies are developed here in India. Hence lesser opportunities to do path breaking research or develop something new.

    Advice to Management

    Initiate new products to be developed in India. We have the talent to make it succeed.

    Pros

    Unmatched work culture and ethics. Respect for everyone and time for family and personal life. Always ready to adopt new technologies.

    Cons

    Not many projects reach the customers and company keeps on investing on them. Since, not all projects reach customers, the refinement levels are not as high.

    People abuse flexible work hour policy and wfh policy. Most of the folks don't appear serious and just pass the time praying they don't get impacted.

    Advice to Management

    Please deal with high graders who are not contributing anything. Stop doing charity so that you can actually reward those who are doing extra.
