    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Opportunity (worked in Mfg, Eng, and Finance), highly-recognized brand, supportive of continued education (MS, MBA, etc.), dominant positions in most markets.

    Cons

    You really need to proactively manage your career here. B/c this is a big company, you can get lost in the shuffle quite easily. As a company, we are in the $40B/year range, so only time will tell if Cisco can bust through that barrier or fizzle.

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

    Pros

    good benefits and pay, they don't look at dedication and good performance

    Cons

    can be a top performer but will get laid off down the road, don't trust Cisco

    Advice to Management

    HORRIBLE UPPER AND MIDDLE management, have "no feelings".. all about the bottom line, and not about the loyalty or dedication of long-term employees... Cisco is a "greedy" company, can care less about the employees who once believed in this company, very disappointing.
