Former Employee - Senior Manager in Santa Clara, CA
Former Employee - Senior Manager in Santa Clara, CA

I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Your paycheck didn't bounce even during the worst of the last recession.

Cons

You could remove 5 of the top 6 layers of management and no one would notice, except things would get done. Hopeless groups of managers having meetings about having meetings.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

next time you do layoffs start at the top down and you might get somewhere.
