Current Employee - IT Architect in San Jose, CA
Current Employee - IT Architect in San Jose, CA

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

Pros

Still a lot of new initiatives, programs. Long term projects, and high level of IT investment, and high impact projects

Cons

lots of bureaucracy. A lot of management and program overhead, short on SME knowledge and people doing solution development work. ... Off Shoring means we loose knowledgable people, and projects are not effectively quoted, delivered. Need to have internal SME's Techleads, Analysts, so delivery can be on time to business needs, on budget.
