"Great place to retire from"

Pros

Very experienced managers, smart folks, security, company is not going to disappear in a few years. Stock is doing well, salary increases

Cons

I am not sure whether Cisco is a "hip" place to work anymore. There is a lot of security, but if you were to go to Stanford campus, you won't really hear people dying to work there.

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

    Pros

    The people are all (mostly) sharp especially when it comes to engineering and sales. It's great to be number 1 and work at number 1.

    Cons

    There are many fiefdoms where input is not appreciated. It's a bunch of happy talk to each other - this will be the end of the company if it continues. Leaders should all know what cisco does and thats not always the case.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up middle management!


  2. "Pretty good company"
