    Pros

    Great atmosphere! The people are Cisco are probably the best part of working there. The culture that emphasizes collaboration and openness allowed me to foster many rewarding relationships. The open office plans and no cubicles really changes the way you work!

    Cons

    The work that I did was engaging and interesting to the point where after leaving work I couldn't stop thinking about it!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to empower and trust employees.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, job rotations, many areas to specialize in, job stability, smart people. Good company culture,

    Cons

    Corporate politics, many layers of middle management, minimal opportunities for career advancement once you reach a certain point since many people are competing to crack into management level. continually reducing head count and increasing workloads. Some people are impossible to please, and that goes through many teams and many layers of management. Appearances of doing good work, doing more work, working long hours are more respected then well thought out ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Workspace has too many people crammed into some buildings. Many projects are born from pet projects and do not care about the outcome / benefit involved.
