    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    A very well established India presence with load of opportunities at work, customer exposure and skill building. Company encourages internal movement to explore various facets of work. With facilities to work remotely, BYOD etc, you can take your work everywhere. Besides core work, a number of activities on campus, partnerships with NGOs, time to give - you can take 5 days in a calendar year to contribute to any community initiatives - either via company or in a personal NGO. Facilities on campus from a fully equipped large gym to badminton/basketball/yoga room and places to relax and unwind, Cisco has it all!

    Pros

    Employee friendliness is one of the major factors to work here. Work is strenuous but timings are also flexible with Work from Home options available. The management is supportive.

    Cons

    Too large an organization suffers from too many processes and redundancies which are not necessarily required. Working between timezones especially between US and Asia really takes a toll. Time zone preference is always for the US which makes Asian employee feel undervalued.
