I have been working at Cisco Systems

Pros

Flexibility in managing schedule allows for great work-life balance

Cons

It is a very "What have you done for me lately?" type of place. What you did yesterday does not matter -

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ensure the company stays focused and maintain the culture of a high speed Silicon Valley corporation.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems

    Pros

    Good reputation, benefits, and flexible working location. Good vision and nice story. It's a pity that middle level management (directors and senior directors) destroy such a great company.

    Cons

    Exec management is disconnected from the rest of the company. People are not important and they treated as such. Great place to suffer as professional and descent human being!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people. They suffer. Correct directors and senior directors. Are the cause of people suffering and Cisco not able to move forward.
