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)

Current Employee - Senior Director of Solution Engineering

I have been working at VMware full-time

Pros

Solid strategy and execution focus with an Inclusive culture and strong support especially in the technical services functions. Highly collaborative and entrepreneurial coupled with innovation as a... priority

Cons

BU silo approach is getting less but still visible to the field. Too many internal promotions at senior leadership roles when the company needs outside DNA to accelerate our journey to be more ‘As a... Service’
