    Current Employee - Systems Engineer III in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Master of your own destiny, company is getting its act together, feel much more a part of 'One Cisco', opportunities for promotion and advancement increasing. Fantastic roadmap, good customer alignment. More of a 'can do' attitude than recent years.

    Cons

    Don't trust the senior leadership enough to feel secure in my job, high amount of 'mandatory' internal meetings, very high workload (due to being under-resourced). Compensation still too stock price oriented for SEs - stock options and RSU don't make up for lower base salary in this economic climate. Not attracting top talent any more. Some colleagues are of questionable ability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to be more customer focussed, focus on attracting top talent.

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits, job rotation
    Lots of opportunities to explore and innovate.
    Work/Life balance depends on your manager.

    Cons

    mostly senior crowd.. can get too technical and boring
    not young and vibrant like Google or Yahoo.
