    Current Employee - Systems Engineer in New York, NY

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay. Some good people left.

    Cons

    Bad management. The beatings will continue until morale improves. Micromanagement. Paranoid managers (who know there are too many of them) who need to convince their superfluous manager that their direct reports couldn't get to the bathroom without assistance. Would be funny if not living it.
    Been at Cisco a long time and it used to be engineering driven. Now - engineers are abused and dared to find a new job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow a pair and provide real advice up the line rather than sycophantism.

    Doesn't Recommend
