Featured Review

Current Intern - Financial Analyst Intern

I have been working at GE for more than a year

Pros

Generally it is very fast paced between closings and projects, you get to learn a lot of stuff at once and gain exposures on different ERPs.

Cons

Overall I enjoyed worked at GE

Current Employee - Software Engineer

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

Pros

1. It has wonderful work culture. 2. It encourages it's employees to be "YOU", you have full freedom to be yourself and this is when they believe the maximum potential can be unleashed. 3. The... leadership is top-notch right from bottom to the top. 4. Cisco respects each of its engineers, and it gives you full freedom to explore your talent, and unleash the potential within you. 5. It produces ground breaking products that are worth the experience to be a part of and contribute towards the same.

Cons

Really? If you have many Pro's i don't even think even the marginal con s are not really a con. However, I don't have anything to share which would be a con.
