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

Pros

Very entrepreneurial, run your own business company. Plenty of resources to perform your job. You can make good money, too. Lots of different technologies to sell, so you're never completely out of an account. Great financial principles, which gives Cisco fantastic long term success.

Cons

It can take a long time to get promoted. Not a clear path to promotion.

Advice to Management

Don't lose sight of the culture that has made Cisco a great company. Continue to invest in your employees. Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems as an intern (More than a year)

    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.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    While Cisco does expect a lot from its employees, I am extremely impressed with its compensation and work life balance. I have seen Cisco do extraordinary things for my coworkers when they absolutely need it the most. Makes me very proud...

    Cons

    I struggle to find a negative, but If you are more comfortable with a small organization, then Cisco isn't the place for you.
