    Former Employee - Sales Engineer
    Former Employee - Sales Engineer

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

    Pros

    Great company, great technology, great people.

    Huge opportunity to get exposure to some of the most innovative and fast paced technology in the industry.

    Cons

    Not the startup or growth technology company that it once was.
    Culture has changed over the years.
    Career and pay advancement is tough. As is with most large companies, there is too much red tape and not enough common sense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use common sense over processes and procedures.
    Focus on core competencies and listen to your employees (especially sales teams) when they tell you certain one off products are not up to par.

    Former Employee - Senior Manager in San Jose, CA

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Market Leader in the Networking arena
    John Chambers - a visionary leader helping the company stay ahead of competition

    Cons

    Company has grown very large, not as nimble like some of thier smaller competitors
    Very slow stock price growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The "council" format of management was not working very well, as it added a lot of confusion trickling down to the rank and file
