I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Highly collaborative environment and opportunity to work with some of industry's top performers
Potential opportunities to grow, especially in Services business
Great benefits package

Cons

Lots of change ongoing - probably par for the industry but feels relentless and sometimes difficult to see how it relates to positive development apart from senior exec positioning

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow time for change to bed in (and measure benefit) before next cavalcade

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Encourage more focus on key priorities and longer term thinking
