Great place to work. Getting back to its old culture... slowly. High tech, but not startup mentality.

I have been working at Cisco Systems (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good managers abound, but politics a growing concern. Has lost the small startup mentality long ago. Works as a big machine with lots of re-orgs.

Cons

Uses old bellcurve system of performance management which discourages management from forming a team of Top 10%. Little ability for employees to share in company stock outside of ESPP.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the old guard at the very top of the structure. Replace the CPC system with one that encourages employees to help each other instead of compete against each other for top 15%.
