Featured Review

Current Employee - IT Analyst Intern

I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than a year

Pros

People always willing to help. Lots of experts and the company is very flexible about the work hours and allows a lot of work from home (they did that before coronavirus)

Cons

As it's a big company, climbing the ranks might not be the easiest thing to achieve and you mind find yourself stuck with a slow progression system if you are not one particularly bright individual... when it comes to dealing with a big companies birocracy.

Current Employee - Senior Project Manager

I have been working at Arm full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Fantastic Package, awesome people, love it!

Cons

Can't really think of any specifically.
