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.

    Great Benefits, but very political. Constant change for the sake of change alone

    Salary and benefits. Strong brand name that will open doors

    Company is too large and in too many markets to have focus. Short term mentality.

    Excellent company to work for , going through an identity crisis , but it will come out on the side
