Positive experience to gain new skills

Marketing Communications Manager (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsOpportunities to work on different things and gain new skills or exposure to new responsibilities.

ConsLackluster compensation; the company has taken away every employee perk and redistributed the wealth to directors who do no work. Management takes care of management for compensation but not individual contributors.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't just tell Fortune Magazine you value employees. Show it by compensation and benefits.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I have been working at Cisco Systems


    Pros: I have been contracting with Cisco (under 3 different bosses) for over one… Cons: There is too much work --- on average 10- 12… Advice to Senior Management: Pay Cisco contractors without any hassle. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
