    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    flexible schedules and great benefits

    Cons

    Career growth at Cisco depends on the team and product. If the team/product is one of the focuses for Cisco, the career growth can be fast. However, after the team has truly integrated into the Cisco culture/processes, growth can be slow. Cisco does provide resources for mentorship and career advancement, however it is up to the employee to manage it well.

    Recommends
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
