    I have been working at Cisco Systems

    Pros

    I work from home 100% of the time which allows me to maximize work / life balance. It is nice to be treated like they trust you.

    Cons

    I've never had a manager that I felt "advocated" for me. It is a very political environment which I found to be demoralizing.

    They provide the benefits that I think any company should (medical, visual, dental, 401k, etc). I thought it was still very expensive for the employee; I've had much better at smaller companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to improve their communication skills and transparency. I don't find many of the managers to be trustworthy.

    Amazing opportunities, but very stressful and a lot of hidden agendas

    I worked at Cisco Systems

    Pros

    Was a rewarding job, great people, great talent. Can accomplish great strides with the resources available. Excellent benefits, people and work environment.

    Cons

    Management is focused on short term wins of outsourcing and has lost site of what made Cisco huge. It has lost a lot of great talent and the remaining talent is focused on doing only what they are told and quick fixes. Too much politics and committees and STRESS
