Pros

Great guys, great technology, great company to work with or at. Top class experiences

Cons

In their size, Cisco can sometimes be a big gorilla to move. You might find that some processes live very high-up the tree

    Pros

    Great culture for those who are collaborative in nature. Cisco provides lots of support systems to be successful in your work.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's a sweatshop. Were it not for forced PTO during Christmas, too many people would be working ON Christmas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to make a decision and act. Too much time is wasted trying to make everyone happy. Too many layers of bureaucracy to be effective.
