    Former Employee - Multitude of Different Roles At the Country and Regional Level
    Former Employee - Multitude of Different Roles At the Country and Regional Level

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    - recognized leader in the networking space
    - strong brand built over the past decade+ aided by strong marketing
    - operated in largely an open and inclusive culture
    - enjoyed being part of the growth in the APAC region and had the opportunity to work with some of the most talented individuals in the industry

    Cons

    As part of the growth (organic and inorganic), it also become over-bloated and over time lost a good degree of agility; and also focus.

    Advice to Management

    Senior leadership - Key your ears to ground, feel the pulse and act.

    Pros

    - Wide and diverse technologies and sales methodologies to learn
    - Best operations and employee tools
    - Space to grow in the organization

    Cons

    - Moderate salaries compared to other smaller companies but better than most giant companies
    - low chances to overachieve as the bar became too high
    - Away from Software industry

    Advice to Management

    - Review the salary structure compared to other vendors
    - Evolve your GTM strategy inline with the current political , financial and technological WW changes
    - Internal managers need a LOT of personal development to become leaders i.e not every good sales man can be a sales manager and not every good sales manager can be a GM , sales or systems engineer management is totally different from people management which you need to develop a LOT .
