    Current Employee - Systems Engineer III in Richardson, TX

    Pros

    A challenging work place that treats it's SE's very well. Even though some first line managers aren't the best, the overall culture is positive.

    Cons

    Once you negotiate a salary that is it for a while. They control pay raises closely and after a couple of years you realize that you are no longer being paid at an industry standard.

    Current Employee - Customer Support Engineer  in  Milpitas, CA
    Current Employee - Customer Support Engineer in Milpitas, CA

    Pros

    * Lots of opportunity to find additional positions of interest within the company
    * Stable workforce so long as you are not involved in a 'fringe' technology team being phased out
    * Generous opportunity to find other positions if restructuring requires, and generous package in lieu of another position if you so choose

    Cons

    * Slow to move into some newer technologies, though rapidly changing that attitude this past year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to solicite customer and Cisco partner input as to recommended changes to sales and support model to make it easier to do business with Cisco. Listen and continue to provide end to end solutions involving industry standards. Provide more open APIs / SDKs to qualified vendors to expand opportunities for 3rd party companies to integrate seamlessly into the Cisco architecture as new technologies are rapidly rolled out.
