Former Employee - Technical Lead in Dallas, TX
Former Employee - Technical Lead in Dallas, TX

I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Every person I ever came into contact at any department was a top performer, very professional and focused. Company benefits are exemplary and depending on your area of work, you could be doing extremely significant work of great value worldwide.

Cons

It is a fast-paced environment, if you don't like challenges or can work on your best every day, you should re-consider.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think for certain technical positions it would be very advantageous to rotate them to different technology areas within the company, so they can be exposed to all that Cisco does first hand.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Work/Life Balance
    - Good Team Culture depending on BU
    - Good internal collab tools

    Cons

    - Every BU is different. Some are more flexible and provide more opportunity than others.
    - Too much signoff required. Many times VP signoff is required in order to proceed to next step.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Keep generating positive Culture in direct team and indirect teams.
    - Learn to be flexible.
    - Promote and keep high performers even if that means transferring them to different BU's.
