I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Flexibility combined with good benefits, good learning scope within the company, Very good Sr Mgmt

Cons

Rewards system for top performers is flawed & demotivating, a lot of politics within first/second line managers & middle mgmt (sr mgmt is good though)

Advice to Management

Identify real top performers and reward them instead of rewarding people who are in good books of first/second line of managers

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - A large technology company with a large breadth of technology areas and market coverage should provide varied opportunities for growth
    - Great place for people with outstanding technical backgrounds who are looking to be challenged
    - Surprising amount of room for growth even though it is currently a large company

    Cons

    - Challenges exist for people who join and do not have detailed technical skills. Cisco struggles with how to use and take full advantage of non-technical resources such as Program Management
    - HR processes (career and professional development) not well managed

    Advice to Management

    - Focus more on HR processes (career & professional development), make managers take a larger role,focus on more than just the top 10%. You are losing a lot of very talented people because of it
    - Develop system integration and complex program management. It is going to be essential to taking services to the next step
