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

Pros

Very good pay and benefits. Wide and competitive product portfolio. Cisco has strong R&D and acquisition teams. Significant opportunity for advancement. Cisco has many good people and is an ethical company. Management does the right thing for the Cisco's business, customers and the workers most of the time.

Cons

Sometimes Cisco's internal processes makes it hard to get something done for our customers. Too much "Red Tape". This issue is being addressed by management but it can't be solved quick enough.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Streamline internal processes and tools.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Cisco is truly caring about employees and when John Chambers calls us the Cisco Family, he really means it. Cisco's compensation and benefit packages are excellent compared to other industry peers. Cisco has an excellent senior leadership team at the top.

    Cons

    In some areas, Cisco has too many layers of management. Also, the work culture can be quite inconsistent across teams. Some teams would be working many hours and tight deadlines and other groups taking it easy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate the fat in the middle layers, Encourage risk taking. If Cisco wants to be a software company, Invest in the go to market and a Sales Force with the ability to sell enterprise software
