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

Pros

Cutting edge technology company, values proactivity, innovation, result-oriented, customer satisfaction.

Cons

Cisco has acquired so many companies to the point its functional structure is always a work in progress. Employees can´t memorize enough acronyms and internal support needs to be re-thought without PNL optimism but with action, facing the issues.

Advice to Management

As informed above.

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked there there with amazing people who I had a lot to learn from. The technology was very interesting. The working environment was very flexible and pleasant.

    Cons

    Very hard to change positions/teams. But the global company structure was changing all the time making it hard to follow to what TG/BU the team belongs of what the company focus is. Almost no integration between various BUs.
