I have been working at Cisco Systems

Pros

Great place for work/life balance. Relaxed environment with many opportunities. Ability to do your job without micromanagement. Highly recommended company.

Cons

Favoritism within some departments for promotions. Some management are not leaders and do not know how to help employees advance their careers, again in specific departments not the entire company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do not choose people for positions based on favoritism. Take training and leadership courses on how to assist employees in career advancement.
