Pros

1. Flexible hours, work from home option.
2. Good bonus.
3. Great benefits. Onsite medical facilities. Free shuttles to bart/caltrain/san francisco..
4. Challenging work and cutting edge technology in some teams. Quality of work and management varies widely across teams/business units.

Cons

Big bloated company, too many layers of management.
Not a fun workplace. Workplace Resources department is very inefficient and does a poor job.

Advice to Management

Get rid of redundancies and unnecessary layers. Make the company more attractive for young people.

    Pros

    Cisco is very successful and shares that success with their employees.

    Cons

    Collaboration is a little harder. People are willing to help, but people tend to work solo. There is an ethic of "research it yourself" that can be counter productive in some cases.

  2. Cisco is a great place to work
