not a great place for a first job

I worked at Cisco Systems

Pros

Nice coworkers. Good building and facilities. Can't really say much else good about the place...

Cons

Terrible support. No professional development. Didn't meet my manager until three months in to the job! Even then they weren't very helpful when I had a problem. Everyone in management seemed too worried about the people above them to help those below. Hard place to break into as a first job out of college if you're starting on your own.

    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.
