    Pros

    Amazing eco-system and support! People have your back. Be your own self, do your best, think big, take risks. Even if you fail, people cover you! I've been here 7 years and I've never been scared of failing. I can't say the same about other companies I've worked for.

    Cons

    Big company, growth can be slow, unless you're among the best.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Campus is Bengaluru is Awesome. Work culture is very good, but sometimes it varies from different Business Units. People get exposure to latest technologies and it's very challenging. Lot many opportunities like Hackathons and Meetup's. Also, there are facilities like Gym, Valley Ball Court, Cricket Practice, Badminton Court...

    Cons

    It's a big company, so getting promoted is much tougher and salary increment is sometimes very less. CAP cases and tight deadlines makes work life balance tougher sometimes.
