Former Employee - Software Engineer III in San Jose, CA
Former Employee - Software Engineer III in San Jose, CA

I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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