    "Empowerment, ALWAYS changing, Diversity, Multi-cultural"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    It is all about delivering results in the SHORT-TERM

    Cons

    Requires to adapt to change VERY fast, to deliver results faster, and the culture varies by organization. If you are really interested to join Cisco, make sure to know very well NOT ONLY your direct manager, but also his manager. The organization changes very often, which makes it difficult to get continuity on what you do for mid-to-long term. So, you must reinvent yourself as valuable contributor on a yearly basis.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to the management team is to ensure new talent is prepared & ready to deliver results, to keep them highly motivated, to keep a positive balance between "old school" and new breeds.

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Smart, Motivated People
    Decent Salary, at least in sales
    Work, life balance is good and better than most companies
    Company values are strong and they enjoy giving back

    Cons

    The work ethic and level of engagement has fallen off in some areas
    People are less motivated, possibly because of stock, and many don't go extra mile
    The speed of change and red tape is cumbersome and frustrating
    The ability to influence and change process is hard, long and challenging, if it happens at all

    Advice to Management

    Focus on speed and agility. Truly embrace different perspectives and thoughts, don't just talk about it.
