    Current Employee - Network Consulting Engineer in Richardson, TX

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
