I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The flexibility with work times and locations is amazing! I love being in an environment in which you're surrounded by smart people, in a high-tech, energetic atmosphere. It's great to receive bonuses that are performance based (in addition to CAP awards).

Cons

It would be great to on a campus that doesn't span several streets (so you could walk or drive a bit faster).

Advice to Management

Consider adding more perks for the people who aren't able to work remotely (rec rooms, additional amenities).

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You work with amazing people everyday. How in tune you are with the organization's vision and the effort you put forth to contribute to that vision could reap benefits that go beyond recognition. You are encouraged to participate in job rotations every 2 years or so to expand knowledge and exposure. You are expected to attend 40 hours of training yearly. Part of that training could be giving the training.

    Cons

    Some team leads and managers manage remotely. This is a relatively new model but the change is good. It can be somewhat of a challenge to be visible but it stretches the individual's resourcefulness to make it possible.

    Advice to Management

    Managing teams remotely is relatively new for Capital. Encourage the use of the video cameras when communicating. It helps develop a connection.
