Pros

Very flexible work schedules. Work from home or don't work at all. No one cares.

Cons

No accountability. Too much bloat. Get ready to change your culture if you're American.

    Pros

    One of the pros of working for Cisco was being able to work on cool products and devices that will continue and improve the internet. Another pro of working for Cisco was a relaxed and comfortable work environment. As an intern, I was given the same freedom and regular employees, I could work from home, arrive and leave work when it was convient for me, and I could wear normal street clothes to work.

    Cons

    One of the cons of working for Cisco was that I did not feel like I was being challenged by the assignments I was given for my internship. I also did not feel like i was surrounded by a lot of very intelligent people as I normally do at college.

    Pros

    Great learning curve and everyday action packed place. Everyone get's a chance to produce and be recognized.

    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 and being a Mentor or Mentee.

    Cons

    No downside. Action Packed place and yet learning encouraged, Work on weekday evening and weekends .. it never ends.

    Advice to Management

    Awesome Management and always overcommits and also exceeds the expectation.
