    Former Employee - Services Sales in London, England (UK)

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

    Pros

    Outstanding product portfolio
    Significant presence in the IT market
    Client credibility
    Global operational capability
    Internal resource pool
    Financial rewards
    London office location
    Calibre of most of the service delivery personnel

    Cons

    Complex internal systems
    Quality of management not as high as one would expect
    Compared to other IT companies there is little opportunity for personal development
    Legacy approach to support services is archaic
    Services product portfolio and supporting tools are far to complex. Cisco tries to fit what they have to meet the client needs rather than build exactly what the client wants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The numbers are important but they should not be the prime focus. Get out and see more clients.

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay was ok for a while!

    Cons

    All based on managing people below you to work their asses off
    Only interested in young Yes men
    Anyone with good innovative ideas is "moved on"
    Stock price is very poor but the market are correct. This is a stagnant company!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop fooling each other that cIsco is a great place to work.
    Get rid of the middle layer of brown noses who do very little work except manage their own career.
    Total revamp required from the top down!

    Doesn't Recommend
