Pros

I came back to Cisco after 11 years. It's great to have on your resume and I'm always very proud to say I work there. They truly believe in a balanced life.

Cons

Hiring Pause...sometimes they lose really GREAT employees because they cannot convert a contractor to a regular employee. While contributing as a contractor, your ideas aren't as widely embraced due to your status.

Advice to Management

I've nothing to give in the way of feedback. I thought you were great in 1997 and I still do!

    Pros

    Cisco really supports work-life balance and has many programs for new hires to integrate into the company and socialize with coworkers. Groups are generally small yielding good sized teams, effective in getting stuff done. Benefits package is great as well. Management communicates to employees well (but doesn't necessarily receive employee feedback very well)

    Cons

    A lot of bureaucracy so its hard to get stuff done, especially with technology that functions across multiple platforms. Sometimes have to work long hours especially close to deadlines. The company is huge so you really only work with and get to know a small group of people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.


  2. Great place to work, challenging and fun.
