Former Employee - Account Manager in Dallas, TX
Former Employee - Account Manager in Dallas, TX

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

Pros

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

Cons

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

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To 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

Recommends
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

    I worked at Cisco Systems as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Cisco is one of the biggest oracle implementations, the projects in the ccit division of cisco are planned way a head and they have very collabarative working atmosphere from the workspace they have to the tools they use etc...

    Cons

    Teams are so bit and the projects go so long, the learning curve is limited because of the size of the company you get chance to work on very few areas of ERP.
