    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    * HR has been auditing pay gaps to eliminate bias/inequity
    * Benefits improve every year to stay competitive
    * Expert Medical Opinion program is great
    * more benefits focus on "whole life" versus just a birth/adoption (this is good)

    Cons

    * Cisco moves fast, and sometimes it can be hard for some to keep pace
