Pros

Good benefits, multiple opportunities for employees to learn outside of their main jobs, collaboration and team work are encouraged. I had freedom to chose the working hours and to some extend my location, as long as I did a good job my managers did not care where I worked from and when I did my job. Great place for women as the management encourages gender balance in senior roles. Strong focus on diversity. Good communication in general

Cons

The company went through a huge amount of change, there was little stability in people's roles, which sometimes encourages short-term thinking. Pressure can be very high in sales roles. Many roles overlap in responsibilities, so there are always multiple stakeholders and interested parties to manage

Advice to Management

Encourage more focus on key priorities and longer term thinking

    Pros

    Cisco has a unique ability to capture market transitions quickly and adapt to changes adroitly.
    Great flexibility for work.
    Well diversified across geographies with diverse job roles available.

    Cons

    Compensation has some room to get better at the lower experience levels - less than 8-10 year level.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good job! Under the leadership of John Chambers and Gary Moore, the company is in the hands of the best IT leaders of today atleast for the next 3 years.
