Approves of CEO

I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

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

Cons

Limited 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 Management

I 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.

    Pros

    feel empowered to do my job. working toward something greater then me and actually contributing toward "Changing the way we Work, Live, Play, and Learn"

    Cons

    A great technology company that is a bit behind the times regarding internal technology infrastructure required for operating and financially managing the company. Somewhat stingy with promotions though other factors and benefits outweigh this issue.

    Advice to Management

    This is geared toward Finance Management: start promoting your talent or you will see an acceleration of the current brain drain.
