I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Great work life balance; I work mostly from home, and go into the office when I feel I need to.

Cons

I've been here for 8 years, received wonderful reviews, got some pay raises, but NEVER have been promoted. There is a sea of grade 10s like me who have been the same.

Advice to Management

Instead of hiring 3 college grads who need one on one time, and nurturing, why not promote the folks who are actually making a difference in the workplace???

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time

    Pros

    Good salary; very, very stable company. Rarely needed to go work over the weekend. Overall very 'comfortable'.

    Cons

    Zero social life; not too 'Human' for a "Human Network".

    I didn't agree on some of the liberal stands of the CEO.

    It's almost impossible to grow in it.

    I never really enjoyed my work there.

    Advice to Management

    Ask people how they feel, anonymously.

    "Lots of churn - reorg. Seems like job or departmental changes every year."

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

    Pros

    Leader in the space. Flexible work schedule.

    Depending on the manager, no accountability. Poor inter-functional communication.

    Advice to Management

    Time for a change at the top. Divide and spin off parts of the company.
