Decent place if you don't want to be challenged

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

I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Work life balance is encouraged, leaders are experienced. Lots of options for a recent grad with many different programs and communities that may interest you.

Cons

Very rigid career path, limited job roles; every performance review is more about red tape than it is about helping you. A significant percentage of management are people who are paper pushers and have been career employees at Cisco (think 15-20 years+) who are more concerned about keeping their job than advancing a vision or program.

Advice to Management

Change needs to start with culture; very difficult to do.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Very big on working from home and will often compensate you in terms of paying your internet bill, etc.

    Cons

    Large company, lots of bureaucracy. Easy to get stuck in the rut and not shine among peers when the work is not exciting.
