I worked at Cisco Systems

Pros

The resources and infrastructure available at Cisco is fantastic. I enjoyed working with the TAC lab administrators, and the rest of the support guys.

Cons

In spite of being Cisco, I was still left a lot on my own when it came to taking the Cisco Certification. Testing, payment for books, etc was left to me.

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

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology company, values proactivity, innovation, result-oriented, customer satisfaction.

    Cons

    Cisco has acquired so many companies to the point its functional structure is always a work in progress. Employees can´t memorize enough acronyms and internal support needs to be re-thought without PNL optimism but with action, facing the issues.
