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

Pros

Challenging, interesting work with great teawork culture. A lot of opportunity to provide value and initiate positive change, even at the invividual contributor level. Supportive and respectful management. Great technology and effective technical direction leadership. Excellent work-life balance. Recent hires from competitors has provided fresh industy insight and ideas that have been positive overall for Cisco.

Cons

Some business operational challenges/inefficiencies that are now clearly being addressed. Learning to navigate within a large and dynamic company can prove challenging for new hires.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work and continue to foster the Cisco family culture.

    I worked at Cisco Systems

    Pros

    We used to have free drinks. Now they have free out-placing service when they offshore your job to China or India. I guess it is a plus that you get to spend a lot of time training your offshore replacement before they let you go.

    Cons

    Too many to name. They are so big, they move like a dinosaur. Chambers says we are family. I would hate to be one of his kids.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire new management.

    Pros

    Great work environment, awesome benefits and opportunities to advance in career. Love the culture to do the right thing for your employees and customers.

    Cons

    Would like to see more structured programs on career building and moving around within the company. Also, regular raises would be great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rate teams instead of individuals if you want better results, sometimes people are competing more than collaborating that hinders in the overall growth of the company.
