Cisco Review

Account Manager (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 10 years

ProsIncredible top corporate leadership (Chambers, Pond, few other in exec suite)
Compensation for sales role
Best benefits (Insurance, etc) in industry

ConsGrueling weekly, monthly, quarterly forecast process and methodology
Work / life balance
Difficult advancement

Advice to Senior ManagementTo Mr Chambers: Keep doing what you're doing, stay strong
To field leadership: ensure you have the right regional and operation-level directors in place and don't be afraid or meek in making changes as warranted. Keep perspective of the "little guy" who is the driver of Cisco revenue and has a finger on the pulse of reality

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
