    Pros

    You get to work on the good software stack and with smart people. Cisco encourages to take up training on courses/technologies of your interest. You can have a good learning curve.

    Cons

    The things you hear about the company is not the same inside. The culture is deteriorating, poor work life balance, you are even asked to work on weekends and no comp offs given if the decision doesn't come from upper management. Too high work pressure , there is no action being taken to increase the resource pool to meet the demand. Less rewards or appreciation even when you put extra effort. It is taken for granted that you were bound to work long hours. Due to high demanding work load , Managers fail to set goals or proper road map for your career development. Most of your colleague are busy and it become difficult to approach them when you are struck and documentation is also poor and literally no ramp up strategy. When you join in, you sure gonna feel frustrated and start feeling probably you are in wrong place.
