Only thing I hate was the internal politics that happen between Managers.

    Pros

    Cisco is a world-class organization with extraordinary people and opportunities. There is no shortage of challenge and opportunities can follow demonstrated performance -- particularly if located in San Jose, CA

    Cons

    Despite its global foot-print, Cisco remains a San Jose centric company from a leadership standpoint and --despite best-in-class collaboration technologies in its product portfolio -- opportunity standpoint. The company is trying to re-establish geographic proximity of colleagues to align with MIT viewpoint on Agile PLM framework. This is beyond silly on a campus where over 40 buildings and back-to-back meetings have employees calling in and WEBEX'ing into meetings where folks are in the same area.

    Advice to Management

    1.) get over co-location. It cannot scale.
    2.) stop chasing HP to the bottom. Cisco will irreparably break if Mgmt tried to get to HP numbers. Focus needs to change to being best metrics per segment space and lose focus on overall GM.
    3.) announce a meaningful retirement plan for Chambers and Pond and stick to them.


  2. "Enjoyed that chapter of my career"

    Former Employee - Multitude of Different Roles At the Country and Regional Level

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

    Pros

    - recognized leader in the networking space
    - strong brand built over the past decade+ aided by strong marketing
    - operated in largely an open and inclusive culture
    - enjoyed being part of the growth in the APAC region and had the opportunity to work with some of the most talented individuals in the industry

    Cons

    As part of the growth (organic and inorganic), it also become over-bloated and over time lost a good degree of agility; and also focus.

    Advice to Management

    Senior leadership - Key your ears to ground, feel the pulse and act.
