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

Pros

Good opportunities to learn if you are in the right organization, know the right thing to say to the right people

Cons

Career growth depends on who you know and not what you have delivered or can deliver. Applying to internal job posting works if you know the hiring manager.

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

    Pros

    Company was stable to work for for years. Good career progression up until promoted to Director.

    Cons

    Recycled senior management - no outside hiring for top tier - no new perspectives. leadership missed the boat in too many markets (flip video vs cameras on cell phones, telepre$ence vs Skype, Cloud XaaS, the list goes on and on)....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the upper management - everyone has been recycled and there is no vision or strategy that comes from the outside

    Doesn't Recommend
