    Former Employee - Product Lifecycle Prog Manager in San Jose, CA

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Improved strategy from the top and including intent to improve working conditions.

    Cons

    offshore staffing is replacing USA staffing. In many cases this staffing is not sufficiently trained or not available during USA working or extended working hours. Pressure to work up to 70 hours per week. Not enough lower level process improvement work.

    Former Employee - Software Engineering Intern  in  Research Triangle Park, NC
    Former Employee - Software Engineering Intern in Research Triangle Park, NC

    I worked at Cisco Systems as an intern for less than a year

    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.
