Current Employee - Collaboration Customer Success Manager

I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than a year

Pros

-Extremely supportive coworkers (the most helpful people I know) -The benefits are amazing - not just 401K/PTO/Health Insurance, but Cisco has so many continued learning events and resources, 5 days... VTO (volunteer time off) to give back, employee resource organizations to get involved with, on site gym (with awesome classes) and healthcare facilities, plus a lot of on-site events to promote cross-collaboration with other groups. - The pay is amazing. - Very communicative and transparent with all changes/considerations. We have monthly All-Hands via Cisco TV where our CEO and much of the C-Suite are updating us on the latest happenings in the company. - Very supportive leadership in ensuring you are set up for success and continually helping you to identify and plan for future roles you may want to take on.

Cons

- The commute/traffic to RTP. - Like many large companies, there are a lot of old tools, processes, and systems that you have to use to do your job. They are working hard to consolidate them though!... - Again, with many other large companies, lay offs can happen (but Cisco did put on an internal career fair the last time for those being displaced to try and refill open positions based on skillsets of those that were impacted.)

Advice to Management

Keep being transparent and working on improving employee experiences! Continue with the work on dealing with layoffs, the career fair was a great start!)

Former Intern - Program Manager Intern

I worked at Hughes Network Systems for less than a year

Pros

1. My mentors were very helpful. They were always ready to make changes if we suggested 2. Mentors were very easy tp approach 3. Interns have a lot of fun activities 4. 98% chances to convert into... a full time opportunity if internship goes well

Cons

The only downside is most of the company still uses old technology
