Current Employee - Software Engineer IV in Austin, TX

I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time

Pros

I get to work on a large project where hard work is respected and occasionally rewarded. Code reviews are taken seriously and smart solutions are noticed. I love the unpredictably of work assignments that comes with working on a new product with agile development, but to be fair, it drives others nutty.

Cons

It is not just enough to be an amazing developer; you must also have the trust of your peers who may be spread across multiple sites and teams. If you have an uncompromising approach to software development is, then you may have trouble at Cisco.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cisco salaries are lagging other top tier employers in the Austin area.

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

    Pros

    Great IT infrastructure
    Great on-line tools to help with every area of your job
    People are always willing to help and go above and beyond

    Cons

    Large bureaucracy can tend to delay decision making longer than normal
    Seems like there was a re-org at the end of every fiscal year
    Had troubles figuring out their core competencies. I think they finally have it right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the core competency. Stress accountability at every level of the organization.
