    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fast paced and challenging work. Working at scale and at enterprise, means that there are some fun challenges to conquer. The business respects work life balance, and we are given freedoms as a product to do what is needed.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy especially when working with the larger Cisco portfolio. Sometimes a focus on selling or adding new features takes precedence over improving existing functionality, which in turn means accrual of tech debt.

Generally underpaid compared to market
