Great launching pad for career
Account Manager (Current Employee), Overland Park, KSApril 6, 2014
Pros: great culture, ongoing challenges and opportunities to grow, excellent leadership and management
Cons: 1, 000 miles from my hometown
I've spent 6 years at Cisco with evolving roles from Financial Analyst to Sales Professional. I've received extensive, ongoing training and grown to be a self-starter with significant responsibility. As part of the my most recent, and perhaps most relevant role, I've managed multi-million dollar territories, never failed to attain quota, established – more... and grew business relationships with key senior executives, organized and hosted massive marketing events in partnership with key channel partners, recevied multiple awards for team contributions including top Account Manager a multitude of times, and identified Sales as the profession I'd like to continue my career path towards. – less

A lot of changes in team and management
Network Engineer (Current Employee), Milpitas, CAApril 5, 2014
Work to work day are typical but does have a learning curve.

Management does not manage or promote.

Very low glass ceiling and no recognition in work by upper management.

Most enjoyable part of the job is that schedule is flexible and you can work from home, time to time.

Excellent place to learn network engineering and to get Cisco Certified
Sr. Network Design Engineer (Former Employee), Tampa, FLApril 2, 2014
Pros: great place to learn high level engineering and to get cisco certified. great team support.
Cons: long hours, and traveling 80% of time.
Cisco Systems is an excellent place to learn network engineering. My daily activities was to design network infrastructures for Cisco Systems high end clients. The major part of my engineering development was while at Cisco Systems. The management staff was hands off unless you caused an issue for a client. My co-workers were very talented engineers – more... that i can call on if needed. The hardest part of working at Cisco Systems was that you may be all alone to resolve a major issue. The most enjoyable part of the job was when you completed a high level design and implemented it with no issues. – less

Not the company it used to be - Just another big company
Network Consulting Engineer (Former Employee), Research Triangle Park, NCMarch 31, 2014
Pros: working from home
Cons: no perks, no raises, no promotions or job movement
As long as your job expectations and objectives match what Cisco has defined, you will be fine. What made Cisco an exciting place to work was that your co-workers had your back and shared knowledge. Now many aspects of your job are now out sourced, your co-workers and manager rarely see you as they maybe located in different states. Expect frequent – more... management, reorganization and job title changes. Constantly being scrutinized and micro-managed is to be expected. Also moving within the company is very challenging as you are either "too valuable in your existing position" or "not meeting standards" due to job satisfaction which is the reason you are looking for a change. – less

Network Consultant Engineer (Current Employee), Morrisville, NCMarch 24, 2014
Pros: smartest people in the industry, will learn a lot
Cons: weak monetary compensation and job security
Cisco is overall a great company to work for.
I've had the pleasure of being paired with the best and brightest in the industry and have been able to learn from them in many ways.
I appreciate all the time I've spent here.

I've also had the opportunity to continually receive great leadership and support from my managers. They have always pushed me – more... to achieve the most and have regularly checked in to make sure my priorities are setup in a way to balance work, life, and goals.

The only downfall I've seen has been the company shift and restructuring that has hurt a lot of teams. Many great engineers have left the company because of this. Also, the compensation for my level of effort and expertise leaves a bit to be desired. I would appreciate Cisco spending more time recognizing effort and success by directly increasing salary to those who make projects successful. – less
