Learned a lot

Finance Manager (Former Employee) San Jose, CA

ProsThe 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.

ConsRegular 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
