Great place to work-- but the glory is fading...

Manager (Former Employee)
San Jose, CA (US)

I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGreat benefits, competitive salaries. Fairly easy to move around within the company. Many competent and caring people on board.

ConsCompeting product lines and priorities. Way too many corporate initiatives to be effective. Work/life balance very difficult due to virtual global teams and complexity of stakeholders involved in almost any decision of consequence. Management increasingly disconnected from the technical community.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen more to technical thought leaders. Trim product lines and features...

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
