Cisco truly is a great company to work for!

ProsChallenging and fulfilling work
Competitive compensation
Great benefits - gym, daycare, on-site health center, excellent coverage for fertility treatment & adoption, and many incentitives to stay fit and give back
Flexible schedule with work from home and other locations option

ConsCan be long hours if you don't self-manage your time
Not as much investment in outside professional development as I'd like

Advice to Senior ManagementStay competitive with compensation... especially with top performers who should be a 1.0 or above comp ratio! Invest more in professional development for people... even make it mandatory to ensure development is taken seriously.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
