Pros

Cisco has provided me oppurtunity to hone my expertises and develop my skills as well as enabled me to develope my employees

Cons

Cisco has been slow to maximize employee potential and I still see employees struggling with management and leadership team to make best use of exployees and maximize their potential.

Advice to Management

Look at each and every employee carefully and try to maximize their potential by putting each employee in areas where the can give most to the company, we are not short of resources where are short of are people who understand what resources to be applied where.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Looks good on a resume, everyone knows them

    Cons

    When I left a well respected hardware company to come to Cisco, everyone tried to talk me out of it, a manager told me (who worked there several years prior to coming to the company where we both worked) told me "at Cisco people don't tend to stab you in the back, they'll come right up to you and stab you in the face!" - a few weeks later I found out how truthful that was

    Advice to Management

    Don't just talk about doing what's right, actually do it, stop the rampant empire building within middle management tiers and the in-house political maneuvering

    Cisco is a big company. Sometimes it is difficult to understand the focus and align with the focus of the company
