    I have been working at Cisco Systems

    Pros

    Work life flexibility, room for career growth, dynamic work environment. Employees can choose to rotate every 1.5 - 2 years and learn something new, or stick with their current role.

    Like with all companies, networking is always a plus, and job visibility is very important for career advancement.

    Cons

    Due to the size of the company, some roles are limited in scope. However, it's relatively easy to pick the right role for you based on job descriptions and interviews.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on the top company priorities. Make Cisco even easier to do business with. Remove bottlenecks in the deal qualification and order processing phases.
