    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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very good work-life balance

    Software Engineer II (Former Employee)
    Bangalore (India)

    ProsWork-life balance and freedom to employees. You can work the way you like as long as you meet deadlines (which are not so tight anyway). Very good opportunities to get trained in CCNA, CCNP and CCIE

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