I have been working at Cisco Systems

Pros

Overall great team spirit, result oriented flexible hours usually, professional environment of respect and trust, mobile working opportunities, reasonable benefits

Cons

some teams are bounded by the old working from office mindset than the coporate mobile work culture; also not too many functions and job roles available within HK office. Also some started behaving in a more bureaucratic manner

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some teams are starting to deviate from some important Cisco culture such as results driven, respect, collaboration, fun to becoming very political and bureaucratic. Hope to have some sort of Corporate culture pulse check team to keep teams on track.
