Great Company

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than a year

ProsWork hard, play hard
Recognize individual talent
Hire smart people

ConsSlow to adapt Agile development methods
Focus more on enterprise than consumers
Sale of Linksys was a bad call - they may have not generated as much revenue as other parts of company, but it was good for the company's overall reputation

Advice to Senior ManagementReconsider consumer focused business - it may not generate as much revenue as enterprise-focused opportunities but it offers an inexpensive way to keep the company in the hearts and minds of consumers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
