Network Consulting Engineer

Network Consulting Engineer (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than a year

ProsGood name to have on your CV, good career growth if you have a director who will help you - and you arent in a technical support role (TS).

ConsCareer growth is slow, pay rises are tough, and there are a lot of people who are "chaff", who are just riding it out for the pension after joining pre 2000 and enjoying the perks.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake people move around, having people in the same job for 15 years makes new blood impossible to attract (and retain).

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
