Cisco is a good place to work

Technical Leader I (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

ProsThe pay and people are excellent.

ConsLong hours, boring work, no state of the art software. Software engineers live in cube land. Senior managment really doesn't seem to know where they are going.

Advice to Senior ManagementMove into the 21 century software development wise. Use C++ not C, use design methodologies. Use existing operating systems.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
