    Mostly a good experience, but became too political over the years

    Director (Former Employee)

    I worked at Cisco Systems


    Pros: Mostly very smart, high caliber people to work with. Management, especially Chambers, has a knack for course correcting fairly quickly. This is… Cons: Way too e-mail and meeting/Webex centric. Signal to noise ratio is too low. It's very hard to get anything important done very quickly.… Advice to Senior Management: More focus on developing people with intent of promoting from within. Do something bold, like ban all… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
