Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great company for:
- learning techniques
- paid advanced education
- collaborative work
- flexible timing
- reasonably convenient workplace environment
- good bonus (if paid out)

Cons

Upward mobility, especially if you're in middle management is almost impossible unless you're hitched to the right VP/SVP - who is moving upwards.

Stock price (saw it slide from over $30 to around $15 in the 2000s)

Advice to Management

"Be sincere about utterances such as more transparent management practices".
"Weed out the culture of kickbacks and cronyisms brought in by the south asian crowd"
