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 Management

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 Management

    Hire new management.
