    Former Employee - Technical Lead in Dallas, TX (US)

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Every person I ever came into contact at any department was a top performer, very professional and focused. Company benefits are exemplary and depending on your area of work, you could be doing extremely significant work of great value worldwide.

    Cons

    It is a fast-paced environment, if you don't like challenges or can work on your best every day, you should re-consider.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think for certain technical positions it would be very advantageous to rotate them to different technology areas within the company, so they can be exposed to all that Cisco does first hand.

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

    Pros

    Good welfare and pay package.
    There will always be experts or SMEs around to ask for help.
    Some bosses will be generous in developing you but they expect a lot more.

    Cons

    Some colleagues may be a little proud.
    Somewhat elitist environment. Not for the under achievers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be all rounded in terms of assessing your candidates.
