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

    Pros

    Great pay, solid benefits, work from home, little accountability, good technology, market dominance.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic. Managers and longtime employees have a sense of entitlement. Large stock grants for management -the rich get richer . Work from home provides opportunities for people to hide with little contribution. Ego driven large account teams. Frequent layoffs hide poor management and strategic decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change sorely needed at the CEO, COO and SVP levels. Stop pocketing the wealth and return the value to the shareholders and employees.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
