Great for people that move slowly

Product Manager (Former Employee)
Santa Clara, CA

I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGreat benefits and work flexibility.

ConsIf you care about what you produce in life, and have grand goals in participating in some of the great technology innovations of our time, this is not the place to be. The culture is sales driven; not technology driven. The business units are constantly competing with each other internally and it is difficult to get anything done.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what Cisco does best: Re-org and buy companies that can innovate.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
