Current Employee - Systems Engineer III  in  San Jose, CA
Current Employee - Systems Engineer III in San Jose, CA

I have been working at Cisco Systems

Pros

Flexible work hours, Cisco brand name, ability to move around within the company

Cons

No career growth, very competitive culture (specially in the BU world), too many instated policies limiting your mobility from a career perspective.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue consolidating, simplifying the partner Cisco relationship and internal processes to enable faster TTM and beat the competition.

 Identify/retain talent and eliminate all ridiculous policies instated disabling your employees from growing.
