I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than a year

Pros

They have good technology, market leadership.

Cons

Sales organization is too short term focus. The weekly commits drives bad customer satisfaction behavior.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think long term instead of weekly commit mindset.

    Pros

    get good salary ; good for family and older workers to have more work and family balance; good bonus.

    Cons

    not much growth. too many policies, bureaucratic.
    hiring non-US for lower wage;
    not a good place for young persons since you will not be able to learn when there are too many policies. Too many teams doing the same thing ; overlapped.
