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

Pros

I enjoy being able to work from home and the tools Cisco provides to make it as easy as possible to do so. Great collaboration and teamwork are the norm in my experience. John Chambers is a great communicator, always very candid and open with employees.

Cons

Tight budgets mean that I don't get to travel to meet with my colleagues in person; upward mobility is difficult if not impossible; constant organizational and process changes are frustrating.

Advice to Management

Keep the current marketing organization and processes in place for at least 2 years before considering additional changes. Please let us relax and do our jobs!

    Pros

    If you work hard and deliver on tasks, and take the occasional stretch activity, you will do just fine at Cisco

    Cons

    Once you get on a manager's bad side, for whatever reason, consider yourself screwed. They will "performance plan" you out of Cisco.
