I have been working at Cisco Systems

Pros

Great People to work with

Cons

Too long to make decisions

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on execution; reward people who produce results, not the ones who do PR of what they do. In the name of collaboration don't punish the people who ask the tough questions

  1.  

    Flexible to work anywhere due to technology. Too much politics and internal tasks that bogs down overall work

    I have been working at Cisco Systems

    Pros

    Flexible mobility at work that promotes culture of work anywhere anytime.

    Cons

    Too much internal work, management positioning crap, all these stifle valuable external work contribution. If Cisco cuts down 50% of internal craps, more could be done to win business externally with customers and partners.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees. Value internal managers and contributors to promote within. Reduce layers.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems

    Pros

    You can transfer to other positions, it's not easy, but it can be done.

    Average benefits, good bonus and flex time

    Cons

    Stock has not done anything in over 11 years
    Many jobs have been transferred overseas
    Job security is not for sure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on a few markets and win them.
    Focus employees on these markets
    Walk the Walk, do not say it's cheaper to move jobs outside of SanJose and then not move them to other US sites.
