It's Hell There Right Now

Senior Manager (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

ProsSeriously great people. Bright minds, very hard workers. The technology Cisco gives you to do your job is world-class.

ConsConstant re-organizing because the leadership is not in touch with the actual work. Engineering projects are not properly funded, so they don't succeed and they are shut down. Morale is at an all-time low...lower than after the dotcom crash in the early 00's.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt is time for Chambers to go. Leaders are being named based on their ability to politic, not on their ability to lead.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
