Former Employee - Senior Product Manager in San Jose, CA
Former Employee - Senior Product Manager in San Jose, CA

I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

1. Execution focused organization. Decent work-life balance.
2. Relationship building is key to be successful - truly the human network at play!
3. Employee friendly culture. Great benefits.

Cons

1. A bit of top-down decision making. The firms' large size forces senior execs to bet only on mainstream trends (a liability for people who want fast moving careers).
2. Lot of presentation & meetings, in the name of collaboration, kills productivity compared to working in a startup/mid-size firm.

    Nothing to really complain about

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to encourage a culture where people are rewarded for trying new things and are not penalized for not always getting it right the first try. Cisco employees have a great deal of pride we want to succeed....
