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 Management

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.

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Cisco cares about the employee and the environment as well as the shareholders. Cisco is an influential company with a large stake in the development and health of the global economy. People listen to you more carefully when you have a Cisco logo on your card. No other company has the ability to take risks and execute strategy the way that Cisco does. Leadership at Cisco means just that - it's a company that really values the ability of creative people to inspire greatness in others. Fair compensation and good benefits.

    Cons

    It's a large company and process can sometimes become cumbersome.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the future market transitions and allow the rest of the company the freedom to execute. Remain committed to innovation in all forms.
