Cisco Job Preview

Development Manager (Current Employee)
Richfield, OH

I have been working at Cisco Systems

Pros- Paysacle.
- Duties.
- Flextime.
- Able to telecommute when the job calls for it.
- Culture.
- Review process.

Cons- Employee ranking system.
- Review process.
- The engineering process too restricting at times.
- The too many layoffs.

Advice to Senior Management- None. I think Cisco management does a good job of executing the plans, I am not sure the employee ranking systems is a positive.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
