I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Cisco is the number #1 networking company. There are a lot of thing to learn on the cutting edge technology.

Cons

Cisco does not pay salary as high as its peers. Healthcare cost contribution is also high. Long commute to work for me.

Advice to Management

Management should create more fun thing for employee like having more department picnics, group outing, bring children to work day ...etc.

    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.
