Pros

If you want to become one of top network engineers, Cisco is the best place.

Cons

Some engineer don't use CCIE skill with their work, but Cisco engineer must get CCIE.
CCIE certification is very difficult. You need more time for getting CCIE.
So we suspect CCIE is whether need or not really at sometimes.

    Pros

    You get to work in a place where you are able to do home office and manage your own time in order to bring results, so teleworking, videoconferencing, and high use of online collaborative tools is a must. As an engineer you will work with the latest technology in the networking industry, and will be involved with high profile customers.

    Cons

    As it continues to grow, it's becoming more and more bureaucratic. There are many processes in place to do almost every activity, and there's also an excess of surveys or polls to measure many of the aspects of work which is needed but when every area does this many times you spend a lot of your day just answering surveys. Lately, at the end of each FY there were major global restructurings which included layoffs, change in strategies, elimination of products/business units

    Advice to Management

    Lower the amount of processes to allow for agile business doing or put tools and resources in place to off load this from field people. Monitor the dates and regularity of feedback in different areas to limit surveys and polls from many sources at one period of time.
