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

    Pros

    Excellent culture of freedom and empowerment, great people, great work. One man being at the helm has obviously helped largely retain focus on the company's goals. As an employer, Cisco provides so many opportunities to learn and challenge oneself! Truly satisfying if you are looking for stability and growth too .

    Cons

    Not the best paymaster. Cisco has grown in size and a result slowed down over the years and there's more "governance" now than before, some of it which seems like red tape

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not compromise on hiring standards and bring in inadequately skilled people

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Access to lots of smart people and technology, as well as lots of good methodology in place to help success

    Cons

    Slower pace than startups, new ventures here tend to be more chaotic. Established business lines have figured out a lot of things

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more freedom to smaller groups to be creative and run fast and free
