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

    Pros

    Depending on the Team, the technology you work on differs, but there is a great push to adopt new tech. Also there are many internal openings in various domains.
    The Campus is awesome, food delicious(not free but via food coupons) and lots of sports and relaxation facilities.
    They are very transparent about the Bonus component and you can be assured that your immediate manager cannot misguide you on how much you are supposed to get since the company performance figures are publicly shared.
    Transport facilities are really nice.

    Cons

    Hikes might be bit disheartening if you are a top performer.
    Cisco does regular layoffs of entire orgs if they do not perform over a period of time. This might be a issue of concern if you land up in an underperforming product.
    However the layoff compensation is quite adequate and one of the best in the industry.
