Great company to work for

Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

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

ProsThis is my first 'real' job out of college - and I can say that the role I was hired into provides the right amount of challenge, as well as the room for growth that anyone could hope for. Working with a team where your opinions/contributions are valued, and expectations set within a reachable limit has helped me grow my own personal career, while pushing the limits of my job description, to the next level.

ConsSometimes that speed of work could be a bit slower than I would like - but I think that is due to the company being as large as it is. Lots of 'hurry up and wait' with the amount of collaboration my role utilizes.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease the budget for R&D to maintain a competitive stance in the Knowledge Management arena.

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