I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great management overall; good salary/benefits; inspiring place to work in terms of contributions to the world; for such a big company, adjusts surprisingly quickly to market issues and opportunities.

Cons

Of late, the company has had numerous re-orgs and the most recent one let go some personnel who were solid contributors which is impacting morale. Also, it appears there's a tops down push to simply eliminate some processes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more consultative in reorganizations to be sure you're only cutting fat, not muscle. Latest reorg feels like big, bureaucratic company move.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time

    Pros

    Cisco offers generous benefits like the life connections center, HSA contributions and 401k match.It also offer a good work-life balanced environment.

    Cons

    Cisco is very bureaucratic and slow, especially on the IT side. Career growth is very limited. There are too many processes to follow with no clear reason. Mid-level management is not tech savvy and does not take bold decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce mid-level management
