I have been working at Cisco Systems (more than 3 years)

Pros

A great place to work and learn for new engineers. I learnt a great deal from this place and the place is great. I like this place.

Cons

Since this is a big company there is some beaurocracy in there. The growth potential is limited since there are so many people in this company.

    Current Employee - IT Engineer in San Jose, CA

    I have been working at Cisco Systems as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Learn about the company and get a good feel for the culture (which is really great). Do work that builds your technical and non technical skills. Able to try different things do you don't get bored.

    Cons

    Unorganized even it comes to interns. Analysts end up doing engineer work and engineers do analyst work so both parties don't build the skills they had hoped for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use people résumés to determine the positions and projects they will be used for.

    Great place to work. After layoff, I was eventually more upset about leaving Cisco than losing job.

    Former Employee - Senior Manager Sales Operation in Philadelphia, PA

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

    Pros

    Great people. Good community. Great use of own technology to enable collaboration and anywhere, anytime, any device connectivity. Home office setup was great!

    Cons

    A little too big and too redundant in some areas, causing duplicate efforts or unnecessary waiting for resolution of conflicts. Working to resolve, at least on operations side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to dial back priorities. It's great to say you are pushing down decision making authority, but by definition you can't have 20 top priorities. It's okay to work on a lot of things, but be clearer about what the top/immediate priorities are within the business.
