Pros

As long as it's in networking if you get bored in one area you can move to almost any other area.

Cons

It can be slow to change, in certain areas that are changing quickly.

Advice to Management

Have them try to be more universal and policies rather than letting each BU decide on its own.

    Pros

    I love Cisco. My role in sales is very fast paced and rewarding, both personally and financially. The Cisco family is unstoppable when it wants to be. Senior leaders are energized about the company and communicate our vision and strategy with clarity.

    Cons

    Cisco is a large company with a complex set of corporate initiatives and solutions. You will need your thinking cap to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Prune the dead wood. Cisco has many employees at the 1st and 2nd level of management that don't lead and won't make hard decisions.

    Pros

    Flexibility. Personal/Professional life balance. If you can prove yourself trustworthy, you can work when and where you want. Excellent family balance.

    Good people.

    Cons

    Cisco has lost the ability to move quickly and act in a common sense manner. Adoption of terrible tools, policies.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up and be counted. Don't parrot policy of the day, use your common sense. If a policy does not work, say so, don't be a sheep.
