Current Employee - Administrative Assistant III in San Jose, CA
Current Employee - Administrative Assistant III in San Jose, CA

I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Lots of change. In my 15 years, I've never been bored. The admin community is strong, and there are plenty of opportunities to enhance your career.

Cons

Lots of change. New technology doesn't always scale properly and there are bugs to work through, causing a lot of frustration in getting your job done. Some processes take too many steps to complete. Politics come and go, although I'm sure that's the same with any other company. Hiring admins thru agencies (budget purposes) makes it challenging for FTEs to find a new position.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay in touch with your workforce.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

    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.
