Former Employee - Finance Manager in San Jose, CA
Former Employee - Finance Manager in San Jose, CA

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

Pros

The people, culture and benefits are great. There are a lot of people with extensive finance and accounting knowledge so there is the opportunity to learn a lot.

Cons

Regular layoffs. The finance function is being moved to low cost areas so there are not a lot of opportunities in San Jose. Rotating to new positions was on of the appealing things about working for Cisco which is not easily possible now.
