No opinion of CEO

I worked at Cisco Systems as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Was in IT. Gave us the option to work with what team we wanted to. Everyone was super friendly and it was easy to talk and meet with VPs and other managers.

Cons

Was in IT. Not making things for consumers meant that their were no strict timetables enforced. Only free popcorn and coffee in the break room was kind of a let down.

Advice to Management

I enjoyed the management. Very clear and organized.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    * Lots of opportunity to find additional positions of interest within the company
    * Stable workforce so long as you are not involved in a 'fringe' technology team being phased out
    * Generous opportunity to find other positions if restructuring requires, and generous package in lieu of another position if you so choose

    Cons

    * Slow to move into some newer technologies, though rapidly changing that attitude this past year

    Advice to Management

    Continue to solicite customer and Cisco partner input as to recommended changes to sales and support model to make it easier to do business with Cisco. Listen and continue to provide end to end solutions involving industry standards. Provide more open APIs / SDKs to qualified vendors to expand opportunities for 3rd party companies to integrate seamlessly into the Cisco architecture as new technologies are rapidly rolled out.
