Current Employee - Senior Project Manager in San Jose, CA
Current Employee - Senior Project Manager in San Jose, CA

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

Pros

Good compensation, challenging work, market strategy is solid

Cons

Constant black cloud of "limited restructurings" (lay offs). LRs have become a perpetual every six month occurance. It's not a lot of fun to work with a constant fear in the background.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

We pay you to come up with better strategies than "LRs". Do your job.
