    Former Employee - Software Engineer IV in San Jose, CA

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some things like pay for performance in certain BUs is true (the one I worked at least). Your bonus is a direct reflection of whether you go extra mile (or) stay 10-5. For a large company they have fantastic CAP(monetary appreciation or gift card) award programs for folks who go above and beyond (which I don't see with most employers) , well defined RSU structure and a much better than average 401k plan. You can work from anywhere as long as you get the work done your manager does not care if you don't show up at 9:00AM. Fantastic team mates and managers!.

    Cons

    Your base salary is low. Lately there has been lot of chopping and churning of work force non-stop. Some mandatory people movements across business units may or may not be liked by you but you have to live with it. Very difficult to move across to other BUs where interesting work is done, often they give huge weight to "current experience" - even for a very good performer if you don't have the exact skill match they're not ready to train you and in an effect you become stale and lazy over time because the desire to move around (which can be a big motivator to stay around) gets killed. Huge bias towards work done in by spin-ins. Some times they're deliberate they don't want your product/BU to thrive irrespective of you meeting H/W release deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please get in a new board and CEO sooner than later and stop chopping and churning every 6 months. Encourage internal innovation and make people movement with in the company easier. Stop punishing employees for spin-ins/acquisitions - they're not worth it, truly.When most of these happen the company will be back to it's good old days.
