    Current Employee - Senior Manager in San Jose, CA

    I have been working at Cisco Systems

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with very high caliber colleagues
    Collaboration across teams is encouraged
    Flexibility in selecting projects
    Easy communication across colleagues

    Cons

    Occasional big company dynamics -- some empire building and difficult personalities, but this isn't commonplace. Tenured and high caliber workforce means promotions can be scarce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep streamlining decision-making. Thinning of management and executive ranks during last restructuring primarily focused largely on removing non-critical management. Why keep (rotate) management that isn't effective?
