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

Pros

Some amazing people to work with accompanied with flexible working environment and generous benefits.

Cons

Lost its focus on their employees over the years. Work-Life balance suffers at times. Has become extremely political which has effected the ability to advance in position.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Instead of laying off the people who actually get work done, consider shedding all the excessive management teams(Directors, VP's, Sr VP's)

No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Still a lot of new initiatives, programs. Long term projects, and high level of IT investment, and high impact projects

    Cons

    lots of bureaucracy. A lot of management and program overhead, short on SME knowledge and people doing solution development work. ... Off Shoring means we loose knowledgable people, and projects are not effectively quoted, delivered. Need to have internal SME's Techleads, Analysts, so delivery can be on time to business needs, on budget.
