    I worked at Cisco Systems as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Some departments are strong and well managed, good to work for but expect you to work.

    Cons

    Ill use of office space, will often be put in unfinished cubicles, or in in-use cubicles. Can be fired as a result of reorganizations of space if contractor

    Note: While working at Cisco I was part of two departments, the first I have no complains about (internal educational training), was well managed and strong. However I then transferred to the accounts receivable department, where I was put in a cubicle which was clearly already occupied, within a month of transferring there was a inter-departmental fight over the cubes, our team of four was transferred to another building where there were only two cubicles, and I was "coincidentally" let go with little and shifting explanations.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
