Pros

An 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.

Cons

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

    Pros

    Company leadership and core talent is top notch. Smart, collaborative teams on every project.

    Cons

    Hard to get promoted and the coming has flattened out in terms of growth. Will look for opportunities outside of Cisco in coming months.

    Advice to Management

    Need to give people a reason to stay despite the downturn. Employee morale took a hit during the recent layoffs and has not recovered.
