Pros

I love Cisco. My role in sales is very fast paced and rewarding, both personally and financially. The Cisco family is unstoppable when it wants to be. Senior leaders are energized about the company and communicate our vision and strategy with clarity.

Cons

Cisco is a large company with a complex set of corporate initiatives and solutions. You will need your thinking cap to be successful.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Prune the dead wood. Cisco has many employees at the 1st and 2nd level of management that don't lead and won't make hard decisions.

    I worked at Cisco Systems

    Pros

    As long as it's in networking if you get bored in one area you can move to almost any other area.

    Cons

    It can be slow to change, in certain areas that are changing quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have them try to be more universal and policies rather than letting each BU decide on its own.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment. Part of a world-class company with strong ethics and employee empowerment. Great options to explore opportunities in technology and leadership. It's a competitive and highly motivated work environment that is good for some but not everyone.

    Cons

    Sometimes the work - life balance is compromised by the motivated work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a focus on maintaining a entrepreneurial and creative culture. We have to avoid becoming too slow and encumbered to drive timely and appropriate innovation
