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

Pros

The best part of working for a networking giant is that our network connects into our homes so working from home or the office can feel the same. The benefits are not bad but have slowly degraded over the years. And the salary seems to be tops for the Austin area.

Cons

I have not had a raise in 4 years and there is always the fear of being affected by a layoff in the future. There are no electric car hookups at the offices in Austin.

    Pros

    Rewards good, hard working employees. Depending on the department there are a lot of opportunities to work from home.

    Cons

    A lot of politics sometimes. A lot of the vendors treat their employees poorly but it feels like Cisco management is more interested in saving money than keeping good talent around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When there is a mass exodus of people, look at their managers.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The caliber of worker is generally good and people are respected for the good work they do.

    Cons

    Hard work and being the most technical doesn't always equal the highest pay or promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less administration and micro management. Let us focus on selling and not on checking boxes.
