I worked at Cisco Systems as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Hands-off management, no coddling, you're left to your own devices to learn the nuances of the problem assigned to you. Helpful team members.

Cons

Wish there were more perks like good healthy food in the break rooms. Very few team outings or lunches.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There should be more team-building activities like group lunches or fun activities on Friday evenings.

Recommends
Positive Outlook
