Mostly rewarding with lots of ups and downs

Senior Manager, Marketing (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsCisco treats employees well and is a company that is truly having a major impact on the world. We work hard, but there is lots of flexibility.

ConsLike any other large company, executive management is disconnected from the broad employee base. This is particularly disappointing at Cisco because it has become rapidly more acute over the last couple years.

Advice to Senior ManagementStay in touch with the people doing the work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

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