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

    Pros

    Clean, uncluttered office with great views, intelligent use of collaboration technology, choose between an X1 Carbon ThinkPad or Macbook Pro as your primary laptop, good mobile/VPN access on tablets/smartphones so you can literally work anywhere on any device, diverse and inclusive culture, regular social events in the office (with wine sometimes), company-supported participation in mass events like SGX Bull Run, JP Morgan corporate challenge, up to 5 days of "Time to Give" which employees can use to perform volunteer work, company matches up to US$10K per employee for every hour of volunteer work performed, CSR activity included on every team offsite event, trustworthy and professional colleagues, regular communication from senior leadership, great internal platforms for learning, including access to LinkedIn Learning and other external learning platforms

    Cons

    Sometimes complex internal processes, few opportunities for promotion (people tend to stay unless made redundant), very challenging business environment despite strong leadership in most market segments and solid product/solution portfolio
