I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good in every way. A lot of things to learn.

Cons

Too many contractors in the company. I believe that quality people hiring as full time can make things better.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to focus more of product stability than features.

    Pros

    The ASE program is all encompassing for someone coming straight out of college. You'll learn everything necessary from a sales and technical standpoint. The program is challenging, but not overwhelming. Very much recommended.

    Cons

    Information is unnecessarily difficult to find- poor internal organization of sales presentation, licensing, tech specs, you name it. Instead of developing google-like searching for internal queries, Cisco is employing ppl to be full time search engines. This is a good training environment, but questionable in terms of efficiency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better tools for your sales force. This has been acknowledged by Chambers, but no real progress is evident.

    Pros

    Not too busy work schedule load, flexibility and not too bad pay, acceptable working environment and employee facilities, equipment and labs.

    Cons

    compensation is relatively low compared with peer companies, coffee, tea, snack offered are amongst the cheapest, tech is not new and lack of innovations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise the compensation to low grade engineers, better daily treatments to the employees, collaboration across industrial, especially with super star companies such as AAPL, GOOG etc.
