It's like the Army with a decent paycheck

Senior Manager (Former Employee)
Santa Clara, CA

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

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

ConsYou 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 Senior Managementnext time you do layoffs start at the top down and you might get somewhere.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
