    Current Employee - Business Operations Manager in Boxboro, MA

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

    Pros

    Great flexibility to work from home, salary and bonos above average. Opportunities to volunteer and give back to the community.

    Cons

    Very slow to make changes. Customers complain Cisco is very difficult to work with. Constant restructures resulting in lay offs (not necessary based on low performance)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve (simplify) the operation and interaction with customers. Tools and processes are difficult and not user friendly. This complicates the operation and cases frustration to customers AND EMPLOYEES.
