    Pros

    Open mind, mobility and you drive your career

    Cons

    Middle Senior leadership need to be changed, identify transformers on middle and bottom to bring up and also combined with some outsiders ( middle means, Directors and VPs)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the SVP and VP layer and promote more Directors to put decision makers closer to customers

    Current Employee - Marketing Specialist in San Jose, CA

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for 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
