Pros

Great company, good leadership, very good benefits, people take pride in their work and actually help each other succeed. Little pettiness, very professional organziation and community--coworkers are actually friends. Salaries are very good.

Cons

Very little downsides. High expectations, as this is a very high performing organziation. But that is to be expected. There is nowhere to "hide" at Cisco. If that's what you want or you don't have a good work ethic, look elsewhere.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management actually listens and overall is doing a great job, especially in Services/Consutling. Another plus is that they promote from within and have a very diverse management team. Everyone has an opportunity to grow, which is great to see.

    Pros

    Cisco Systems, as a whole, have relative good performance over its life time.

    Cons

    One need find a good business unit within Cisco Systems. If not, the "Cisco" life will not going to be good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management should put the company overall profit as the highest priority.
    They should not just think inside of each business unit only.
    They should promote more information and resource sharing across different business units.
    They should try their best to keep people who work for them happy.
    They should do not just please their boss, and forgot these people who report to them.
    They should try their best to keep a good engineer with Cisco Systems instead of letting them left Cisco.
    They should do not just think of the growth of their own team and their own politic power within Cisco.
    They should be open mind and suggest their own team members to freely move around within the Cisco Systems.
    If so, it will attract more talent people to join their team.
