A stellar company with strong leadership and innovation.

Engagement Manager (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

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
