Featured Review

Current Employee - Systems Architect

I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Cisco has a great give back program. The work life balance is better than a lot of other companies.

Cons

The pay level at Cisco is much lower than the other tech companies. Promotions are extremely hard after level 11.

Advice to Management

A Restructure on the pay levels should be done.
