Current Employee - Global Partner Marketing Intern in San Jose, CA
Current Employee - Global Partner Marketing Intern in San Jose, CA

I have been working at Cisco Systems part-time (less than a year)

Pros

People are friendly, comparatively slow pace. Instructions are clear. Great perks and the teams go out to do activities every month or every 2-3 weeks or so, which is covered by the company.

Cons

It's a big corporation, so you may be working at a position for years and not move up. But it's typical for such a giant.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Evaluate interns fairly. Many of the interns got in because they are the daughters/sons of current employees. My workload was SIGNIFICANTLY heavier than theirs.

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

    Pros

    Virtual office supports work/life balance, typically strong, Sr sales talent, sales discipline drives exceptional visibility, executive level support for any deal when needed, Aggressive M&A strategies to plug holes, and broaden Cisco relevance in transitioning markets (collaboration, security, etc...)

    Cons

    Very aggressive, and political at times as you move up (or want to change jobs).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company values are strong - proud to work for Cisco, and their values and ethics
    Consider closer scrutiny of legacy sales reps in roles too long, as they are not as provocative as needed to drive aggressive quota increases
