    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I had enjoyed working with Cisco and the teams. It was rewarding journey from learning and career perspective. I liked the company in many aspects: great culture, transparent communications from executives, ethical, collaborative and inclusive working environment and superb talents community. If you show good potential, are passionate to take bigger responsibility and take initiative to advance career, I have found management is always willing to provide mentoring and coaching and development opportunities. I also felt proud about the fact that the company put lots of efforts in social responsibility.

    Cons

    I generally worked long hours and sometimes stayed up late to get connected with team from other countries. Headquarter centric, there were moments that regional team needed to fight for decision making.
