A stellar company with strong leadership and innovation.

Engagement Manager (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Cisco Systems

ProsGreat 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.

ConsVery 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 Senior ManagementSenior 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
