A very great place to work, it feels like a company that cares even though it is a large company

I worked at Cisco Systems

ProsAn excellent yearly review system that results in an impressive bonus. Management is accesible and each year you have an opportunity to have a lunch with the CEO (and many others with the same birthday of the month) and ask him a question if you want to. Egronimic services are available to customize your desk if that is what you need.

Consthere could be more effort to compete with the tech start ups in providing a more interesting workplace. The offices are a bit drab.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
