    Former Employee - Human Resources Manager in San Jose, CA

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Big company experience, benefits and perks, large campus and working from home. Mergers and Acquisition experience a plus. Virtual relationship tools.

    Cons

    Constant change of managers, inability to set a path and stick with it, and too much use of consultants. Too much emphasis on each person's career and not enough collaborative success. They desire an entrepreneurial spirit, but do not know what to do with it...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work more for the company and less about managing up

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

    Pros

    Cisco has a number of great products and plenty of tremendous people.

    Cons

    The company growth is limited by the size and complexity. This means that stock is worthless and their is extremely limited financial upside in working at Cisco. Compensation isn't up to the standard of the rest of the market.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
