Pros

Strong branding with high customer credibility. Responsible organization that will address customer issues to satisfaction.

Cons

Mature company so compensation is not aggressive. Goals are challenging as they typically insert an uplift of 20-25% on actuals which can be difficult if you are in the same patch for several years.

Advice to Management

Review competitive compensation plans to insure that we are attracting and retaining the best and brightest in the industry. Cisco is no longer a company in which you can earn at a high level with current comp models.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Cisco is an arms dealer - as internet technoligies and appliceations get more and more pervasive nad popular, as data and voice gets more and more critical to business and commerce - Cisco only stands to gain.

    Good company, healthy culture, great benefits, good inter transfer opportunties

    Cons

    Matrix organization can be difficult to work in, silos and turf wars happen often, if you are in corp then San Jose is where you need to be to get ahead. Promotion seems to happen only when you look like you will leave otherwise - not because it is deserved

    Advice to Management

    More transparent promotion polic
