I worked at Cisco Systems as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

-Happy people, everyone has fun
-Cooperative workplace, not cutthroat environment
-Great opportunities, get a foot in the door and you can go anywhere

Cons

-Getting a foot in the door can be difficult, try, try again
-Can be a little difficult to get into the right spot initially, most people start in basic job, then transfer to right department
-Some positions can be a little stressful, but most is created by individual, very easy to manage if well equipped

Advice to Management

Had some recent bad news in workforce shrinking, but nothing day to day should be affected

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

    Pros

    Cisco treats employees well and is a company that is truly having a major impact on the world. We work hard, but there is lots of flexibility.

    Cons

    Like any other large company, executive management is disconnected from the broad employee base. This is particularly disappointing at Cisco because it has become rapidly more acute over the last couple years.

    Advice to Management

    Stay in touch with the people doing the work.
