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

Pros

Open mind, mobility and you drive your career

Cons

Middle Senior leadership need to be changed, identify transformers on middle and bottom to bring up and also combined with some outsiders ( middle means, Directors and VPs)

Advice to Management

Reduce the SVP and VP layer and promote more Directors to put decision makers closer to customers

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work culture is good - there's a good sense of trust and delegation. Managers strive for work/life balance. In addition, there's a lot of diversity of job functions and roles.

    Cons

    For those coming from smaller companies or companies with less virtual meetings, adapting to the semi-virtual work environment takes time. Even if someone works at HQ, they might spend 70% of their time with virtual teams. Promotions take longer than at many other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Increase focus on incentivizing employees

    Pros

    Stability, if you do your job there is not a reason to get laid off.

    Cons

    salary growth, I know many people that leave to come back a year later to get a higher salary.

    Advice to Management

    pay the people that have been there as much as you pay the new highers
