    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good pay Work from home options

    Cons

    Agist company who only value people who have been in the industry for 10+ years. If you are young your options are limited to inside sales or contracted positions. They do layoffs once a year minimum and sometimes twice, constant stress on whether or not you will be employed in a couple months. No culture, no fun holiday events, no bonding outside of work unless you are in inside sales.

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

    Pros

    Work with very smart people, high pay, seniors don't treat interns like most big companies do. Get to work on real impactful projects, work from home, and very well paying company.

    Cons

    American company so less opportunity for Canadian interns.

    I worked at Cisco Systems

    Pros

    - Work from home - Friendly, helpful people in general - Lots of potential opportunity - it's Cisco!

    Cons

    - A lot of contractors (I was one of them) vs full timers. - I had to leave; my manager was not quite "there". I was a contractor through an external agency, so I should have pieced that something wasn't right when he called me before my onboarding and asked me for a status update... only when I told him that the agency was waiting on his feedback and haven't heard from him, he asked me "so how is that going?". Well I wouldn't know because that's up to you... Everything was completely out of place with his state of mind; you could ask him what day of the week it is to which he would reply "exactly". I have no idea how this individual could work up the ranks at a company like Cisco, especially as a manager. ... but as far as explanations for his behavior, as it turns out he is searchable on google and there are plenty of clips of him on social media doing drugs. Ouch.
