One of the best if you want to work at a big company

Product Management (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsSo influential in the rise of the internet. Bellweather for tech.

ConsLots of layers. Executive leadership has been spotty. No clear strategy in many groups other than playing the best defense.

Advice to Senior ManagementCisco has the components and pieces, but it is so difficult to get things done when it affects and requires lining up multiple businesses. And there are still too many layers of management and process and overhead

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
