    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Software Engineer II in Bangalore (India)
    Current Employee - Software Engineer II in Bangalore (India)

    I have been working at Cisco Systems India full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    1) Work life balance
    2) Pays Bonus even when the market might not be great.
    3) Senior management is approachable.
    4) Team members are generally and genuinely very helpful.
    5) if you are working on a good projects the learning is simply too good.
    6) Tech-talks, trainings and tech-related events are awesome.

    Apart from the above, plenty of benefits such as. [listing few of them]
    1) Company pays for Broadband @ home.
    2) Flexible working hours [as long as work is not getting impacted]
    3) Medicare and Annual health check-ups.
    4) 'Superb' Cab facility.
    5) Child care facility in the campus.
    6) The Bangalore Campus is simply amazing. I've seen people coming to office on weekends to relax, walk, play and have fun.

    Cons

    1) Off late too many organisational changes. [might be a good thing; not according to me]
    2) "Crying baby gets more milk" -- sort of a mentality. Hikes and promotions not always awarded per 'merit'.
    3) Good amount of churn in the senior management suggesting things might not be that stable currently.
    4) Most of the times your roadmap is not clear. Maximum visibility is I guess for coming 3 months.
    5) Sometimes it is just fire fighting for weeks and months. Whatever comes up has 'ASAP' tagged to it.
