Cisco is big company with lots of opportunity, but you need to find a manager that supports you to succeed.

Current Employee - Finance Business Manager in San Jose, CA

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

Pros

Opportunity (worked in Mfg, Eng, and Finance), highly-recognized brand, supportive of continued education (MS, MBA, etc.), dominant positions in most markets.

Cons

You really need to proactively manage your career here. B/c this is a big company, you can get lost in the shuffle quite easily. As a company, we are in the $40B/year range, so only time will tell if Cisco can bust through that barrier or fizzle.

    Pros

    Cisco provides a very good work and life balance

    Cons

    Compensation lags the competitors and so does the promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate and reward your employees on par with industry standards and do not work like a government.

    not very nimble as far as new design, new products.

    Too much concentration on non-money making inititatives. We should be driving new product developement harder.
