    Bait and Switch

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Research Triangle Park, NC

    I have been working at Cisco Systems as a contractor for more than a year


    Pros: Intelligent, motivated and interesting colleagues Flexible work location if your manager… Cons: If I didn't know better I would think that the primary purpose of Cisco was to produce PowerPoint presentations The offices are dirty and filled… Advice to Senior Management: Bring in some youthful energy . Switch the focus… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
