Big company bureaucracy, lacking agility to respond to market inflections.

    Current Employee - Marketing Specialist in San Jose, CA

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Work culture is good - there's a good sense of trust and delegation. Managers strive for work/life balance. In addition, there's a lot of diversity of job functions and roles.

    Cons

    For those coming from smaller companies or companies with less virtual meetings, adapting to the semi-virtual work environment takes time. Even if someone works at HQ, they might spend 70% of their time with virtual teams. Promotions take longer than at many other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase focus on incentivizing employees

    Pros

    Stability, if you do your job there is not a reason to get laid off.

    Cons

    salary growth, I know many people that leave to come back a year later to get a higher salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay the people that have been there as much as you pay the new highers
