Cisco is a great company to work for.

Senior Technical Writer (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsThe culture fosters trust and respect. Flexible work hours allow employees work and life balance. Happy employees make a happier work environment, Start-up mentality encourages new ideas and approaches.

ConsToo many layers of management. Managers bring their own friends foster ting nepotism. relocation of jobs overseas.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease pay attention to individual contributors and don't get bogged into the management ladder. Upper management must pay attention past the layers of management to the backbone-- individual contributors.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
