Great company to work for

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsRoom for growth. If you take initiative you can go far. Many ways to get involved. Cisco has a great volunteer program that lets the employees contribute their time to good causes. Good teamwork and collaboration within Cisco.

ConsThe employee evaluations are sometimes difficult to compile. The employee needs to asses themselves, then the manager gives input. Here is where you list your accomplishments and classes you have attended. Unfortunately, the admins are grouped together with the teams they support, so it is hard to rank high compared with team members that do more complex jobs.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
