"I've worked in Cisco systems for more than 1 year. Basically, I like the project I am working on. It requires lots of my creativity and critical thinking. From the project, I have learnt a lot, not only on the technology side, but also about how to communicate with others, especially in a global working environment. The con of the company is that there are lots of politics in the decision making, which really annoys engineers."

"I've worked here for 2 years and felt that the developers are treated as cows who are expected to work like 18+ hours a day all 7 days. Senior management is totally not concerned about employee work-life balance."
