A fine company all-around, but the start-up atmosphere has long faded.

Manager, Operations (Current Employee) Raleigh, NC

Pros-Excellent culture for tolerance and inclusion
-They work hard to retain employees
-Strong pay on hire, but incremental increases are far more difficult to secure
-Leadership is willing to change and evolve the company as necessary for adjusting to economic conditions

Cons-Expect a very corporate environment (think HP and IBM)
-As a global business entity, "virtual" is the playbook. If you prefer local teams, this isn't your place.
-Long hours and very hard work are norms. Typically, those who live to work are most successful.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore investment in identifying and fixing infrastructure issues which hold back the sales force from maximizing opportunity.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Cico Has A Broken Engineering Organization

    Software Engineering Manager (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: Cisco is a pretty good spot to land if you're… Cons: Cisco's engineering organization runs on nepotism. The performance reviews happen in reverse: The management decides whom they want to move up, then they… Advice to Senior Management: Focus on engineering excellence and build a cult of personality around the software developer like has been done so… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
