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

    Pros

    It has a very open culture and takes care of it's employees well. Most of the time work ethics and responsibility taken by employees are good

    Cons

    Off late, open culture is going away, by virtue of cisco allowing it's acquired companies to giving a complete free hand and that has destroyed some of the good DNA of Cisco. Most of the time, the head of these acquired companies and it's VPs manipulate things just under the nose of Cisco's heads just for their personal growth and destroy the team and later run away to other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let there be Cisco's DNA, principles and work ethics be made mandatory to acquired companies and it's heads and VPs and keep a tab on it.
