Current Employee - Software Engineer IV in San Jose, CA
Current Employee - Software Engineer IV in San Jose, CA

I have been working at Cisco Systems

Pros

work life balance
better benefits
401k match

Cons

job performance/skillset is not relevant
engineers treated as house servants
get attacked if you don't attack others(jungle culture)
finger-pointing/self-promotion the normal way of life
no risk taking in management/project decisions
too many non-technical mid-level management layers
cheap treatments to employees financially
no career path or education/training opp.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

good for certain groups of people, especially from certain area of the Earth. Not a good place to work for rest of us. But if you can live with it, you get the 401K match and good benefits
