Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sometimes, just because Cisco is too huge, we might need more communications going between managers and employees to ensure things are going on well and all is happy at what they do and what they get.

    Pros

    The company has shown the ability to survive multiple waves of technology and competition. Thats not common in the tech industry where success and stability is not long lasting in most companies.

    Normal challenges of a large company with bureaucracy.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A lot of career opportunities and Cisco strongly encourages it's employees to look for advancement within Cisco. They take good care of their people.

    Cons

    Cisco is a very large shop, so if you're not used to working in a 70000 person company it could cause a bit of a culture shock for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your pay scale is in line with the market. I took a decent pay cut to come and work at Cisco with the intent that it would catch up. 2 1/2 years later, it has not.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
