Cisco RTP is a GREAT place to work!

Business Development Manager (Former Employee)
Research Triangle Park, NC

I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 10 years

ProsFlexibility of working remotely.........Cisco provides CVO routers and equipment for your home office. With WebEx and your camera you feel connected at all times

Cons........you feel connected at all times............my job was global so the hours can be long

'collaboration' is excessive. A leader needs to step up an make decisions.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake decisions faster!
Don't give your CEO an 80% raise the day before a major employee layoff and say it was because of his past year accomplishments............who were the workers for those accomplishments????

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
