    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A dynamic, growing part of Cisco which is at forefront of the company's transition to a software company. Working in Customer Success gives me real opportunity to make a real difference to Customer and Partners alike. It is also great to be part of one of the brightest, most diverse, fun and growing groups within Cisco.

    Cons

    Sometimes feels like we are growing to fast for our business and our processes and tools are playing catch up- but I am confident that will be fixed imminently. Additionally, some parts of our business just don't get Customer Success and are stuck in the past regarding Selling Motions

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing regarding Customer Success, but make sure the company wide initiative that it is is fully understood and embraced by everyone inside Cisco, and integrated into what they do with Customers.

    Pros

    Career progress and perks. Flexible work hours. Ver respectful and inclusive.

    Cons

    Unbelievably tedious process. Not very interesting projects lately. Lack of direction. Nobody is motivated to do their jobs any more (in the UK teams at least).

    Advice to Management

    A manager is supposed to help and enable her/his reports and give career direction. Here management are just a bunch of uptight know-it-alls (for the most part).
