Turned out way better than expected

Software Engineer II (Current Employee)
Milpitas, CA

ProsWork - life balance is amazing.
Everything is networked. You can work from home.
Most managers don't care how long you work as long as you get the work done.
I reach the office by 11 am. And that is fine.
Because I'm not a morning person, I absolutely love the flexible working hours.
The compensation and benefits are great. I was never expecting to be paid in 6 figures, fresh out of college.

ConsSeems a bit political.
Raises are rare it seems. Not sure.

Advice to Senior ManagementHow about more goodies like backpacks and tee shirts?
Those go a long way for new hires.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

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


    Pros: Cisco invests in its people and gives a lot back to the community. They are a smart and ethical company. They are… Cons: Cisco is very large. You have to take a hand in guiding your own future. They are working… Advice to Senior Management: Stack employee ranking is the number one threat to morale!
