I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Best in class solutions for customers in the industry, Can be confident to know you have a great company behind you and value-add solutions that help our customers achieve their business goals and plan for the future. Many resources available to help you be successful in your role. Fantastic team environment. Most employees are smart, hardworking, and always willing to help. After 90 days you can typically work from home 1 day a week. Challenging goals and high expectations from management, but a culture that emphasizes work life balance and is of the, get your work done and do what you have to do mentality. Good flexibility and very little micro-management. They hire good people and treat you like adults, meaning they trust you to be productive and get things done. Great long term career opportunities and exposure to many different roles and career tracks. Your options are endless. Many employees at company for 10-15+ years; very unusual these days, especially in IT. This is a testament to the wonderful culture at Cisco.

Cons

Large corporation that can be cumbersome at times. Must be very flexible as things change regularly. Days fill up quickly with many meetings, training, etc., not all of which are of great value. Have to learn what is important and what you can skip. Tools can be frustrating to work with, still use way to many Excel spreadsheets for things and underutilization of CRM capabilities.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work! I have always been very impressed with the quality of the leadership in my organization.

    Pros

    Great customer experience. Bleeding edge technology

    Cons

    They get rid of long time employees and outsource their work to India and Costa Rica. The customer support suffers and the customer satisfaction plummets and all they care about is the bottom line. There is no loyalty anymore. They do not care about the employee or the customer. It is all about metrics. Take a case close a case.

    Advice to Management

    Respect and appreciate your AMERICAN born work force
