    Cisco has a great work culture apart from the cutting edge technology and solid experts.

    Manager (Current Employee) Bangalore (India)

    ProsGreat people, good technology to learn, length and breadth of options in telecom domain, work-culture

    ConsNot a negative side, but it's something which some of you may feel it is. One has to take ownership of his/her own career. Doing things which are assigned simply will not let the career graph grow. One need to take extra initiatives to prove time and again.

    Very good work-life balance

    Software Engineer II (Former Employee) Bangalore (India)

    ConsEmployees need to proactively manage their personal growth - otherwise there is a possibility of getting stuck in the same role for many years
