Human Network?

Network Engineer (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA

ProsGood salary; very, very stable company. Rarely needed to go work over the weekend. Overall very 'comfortable'.

ConsZero social life; not too 'Human' for a "Human Network".

I didn't agree on some of the liberal stands of the CEO.

It's almost impossible to grow in it.

I never really enjoyed my work there.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 8 years


    Pros: On-site medical, fitness center, and child care Campus environment Historically good bonuses… Cons: Unstable business model where reductions in force are a regular way to trim costs. If you look at Worker Adjustment and Retraining Act (WARN)… Advice to Senior Management: Create stability in the business model where the workforce is… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
