Pros

One of Cisco's greatest pros is work/life balance the company provides to its employees; there is great flexibility when taking time off, and/or working remotely (ie. from home). In addition, Cisco provides its employees with excellent collaboration tools that allow for flexibility in work schedules, and an improved interface between employees in locations around the world. Cisco is an incredibly diverse company, and fosters an environment that is truly global. Lastly, I would cite that Cisco is a very generous company when it comes to benefits and caring for its employees.

Cons

Career development and Recognition have been cited by employees as areas Cisco needs to improve in. At least in my business segment, promotions are rare, and as someone who is rather low in the corporate ladder, there is very little room for growth. In addition, there are very few (if any) mentors among senior staff members that can help younger employees grow in their careers.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Good work environment. Decent pay. has a good transport facility in bangalore. has some nice people working.

    Cons

    really really bad career growth. it totally depends on the team you are put into. manager try to prevent moving to a better team for their own selfish motives using unethical means. Really sorry state of affairs when it comes to career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Retain talented people by providing them better opportunies. Promote inside talent instead of always hiring from the outside. Revamp internal movement system.
