    Current Employee - Fsa in Malvern, PA

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    If you are a workaholic with a bit of A.D.D. you have come to the right company. Things were always changing and you had to keep up. Fast paced and generally positive place to work. I enjoyed the global view on things and collaborating with people I would never meet in person.
    Good benefits, flexibility and PTO time.

    Cons

    It is a great place to work just not for the faint of heart. You work as hard as you get to play. Hours can be long and inconvenient. In the administrative area, there was no career path if you are located in a smaller sales office.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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