    Former Employee - Multitude of Different Roles At the Country and Regional Level

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

    Pros

    - recognized leader in the networking space
    - strong brand built over the past decade+ aided by strong marketing
    - operated in largely an open and inclusive culture
    - enjoyed being part of the growth in the APAC region and had the opportunity to work with some of the most talented individuals in the industry

    Cons

    As part of the growth (organic and inorganic), it also become over-bloated and over time lost a good degree of agility; and also focus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior leadership - Key your ears to ground, feel the pulse and act.
