Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Good work/life balance, good work culture and transparent policies. Flexible work practices.

Too much restructuring taking place. Not the most challenging place to work in general but some business units do cutting edge stuff.

Advice to Management

Stop acquiring companies and laying off people at the same time.

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

    Pros

    Great products and services, good employee benefits

    Cons

    No opportunities to move even horizontaly, many contracted resources for positions that could be permanent, hence growth is limited. Many people doing who knows what and many positions are filled with people from the outside instead of internal good resources

    Advice to Management

    Give priority to those in the company to grow, be clear on policies and be realistic on business growth targets
