    Former Employee - Marketing Director in San Jose, CA

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of smart, great people at Cisco who have good intentions and work hard. It is very large company so there are ample job opportunities. Compensation and benefits are good.

    Cons

    The company has gotten too large for the current structure. The large number of acquisitions has diluted the once great culture. It has become very difficult to get things done. The company needs an infusion of new, aggressive leadership.
