Featured Review

Current Employee - Marketing Manager

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

Pros

- A truly flexible working culture. You can work anywhere at anytime- but if they are flexible, you need to be flexible too - Great pay and career opportunities. Cisco always gives you (and... encourages) you to try new roles/ paths - Intelligent and passionate people with great vision from VPs/ Execs

Cons

Not a con but more of a side note- you get all the above cons but are expected to work hard and give it your all. Another thing I have noticed is there does seem to be a yearly 'restructuring'... where quite a few redundancies are made to remove bottom 10%. Then shortly after there will be a mass hiring of new talent (although this may be a positive to remove slackers and keep an energised workforce)
