Satisfied with my work within Cisco

Network Consulting Engineer (Current Employee)
Richardson, TX

I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 5 years

ProsTuition support
Work life balance
Fair salary
Promotional opportunities (long run, not short)

ConsLimited potential and promotional opportunities in short term (e.g. Not sure why if you get promoted its almost guaranteed a year "time off" of the promotional treadmill to make space for others).
Salary growth
Stock price
Bureaucracy and levels of management

Advice to Senior ManagementI am an engineer - please make communication of my directives and priorities very clear and concise. I know what is expected from me by my manager and their manager about him. But I get lost in the multitude of corporate communications which see to hit my inbox every week, seemingly from different levels on different directives.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
