Pros

Cisco allows employees to be accountable and responsible. This creates a culture of the best rising to the top, and being rewarded for their actions and accomplishments.

Cons

As with any large company, there is a decent amount of bureaucracy and unfair practices. However, when brought to the attention of most managers, I've seen these situation be resolved fairly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make decisions based on data, data and more data. Don't allow certain individuals to influence who should get funding, what should be cut or where to balance the business.

    Pros

    An industry leader in Enterprise UC solutions. Targeted company priorities and vision.

    Cons

    Too complex and difficult to do business with both internally and customer facing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on changing what can be changed or improved. Have more back bone to stand up to the negative criticisms and take out the competition if it is needed.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems

    Pros

    Be part of a big team spread across multiple continents around the world. One of the few oldrst and original tech companies around.

    Cons

    Too much process oriented. Too much red tape involved. Technical is not the most sophisticated one out there. Still rely on decade old technologies. Feels like a government agency sometimes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of extra layers of redundant processes. Provide more growth opportunities and train employees to be successful leaders in the future.
