Pros

Always on the cutting edge, one step ahead.

Long hours but interesting work.

Advice to Management

Cut the fat in the middle, not the top or the bottom. Heavy middle management...too many layers.

    Pros

    Endless possibilities. You truly create your own destiny. Smart people with a very flexible schedule. As long as you deliver quality results you can work remotely and maintain a very flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Very fast paced. You need to be set boundaries or you will end up working around the clock. You need to have a contract with your leadership team and be clear about what you will do and won't do. If you can come to an agreement on that, you will have a fantastic time working at Cisco.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees. You aren't fooling anyone with half truths or stall tactics. Just be open and honest.
