Heavy Politics
Business Analyst (Former Employee), San Jose, CAMarch 25, 2015
Heavy Politics. Benefits & Perks are good and opportunities are available to move around the company. But the politics is a big turnoff.

Pros: opportunity to work in Home-office

Support is Reactive, Engineering is Proactive - Choose your risk
Technical Support Engineer - WW-SV TAC (Current Employee), Research Triangle Park, NCMarch 24, 2015
Pros: Free lunches whenever they ask for more, Access to free refurbished equipment, Lab access
Cisco is a great place to work, but make sure you start on the right side of the tracks. Starting out in support is a great place to gain exposure, industry insight and familiarity with products but it is never a wise long term career choice.

Cisco offers a wealth of opportunity to get promoted to the engineering side. To truely have a good work-life balance and tenure at Cisco you should think long term and get a career in engineering.

Support is the money maker for most companies, but it also accounts for most of the companies liability. Its a high risk job with a high return.

Great Place to Work
Software Engineer (Former Employee), San Jose, CAMarch 21, 2015
One of the best things about working for Cisco is the amount of documentation and the ability to search, and find, information quickly. With the internal lab discount on Cisco products, my lab always had the necessary equipment to support testing. If I ever needed a tool for my work, I asked and it came.

Managing the Healthcare Projects donated to the government of Jordan by Cisco Systems, CSR Department, gave me the capability, knowledge and experience to Manage very sophisticated large scale projects dealing with variety of stockholders from different cultures and Expertise. Filling the gaps between the expert stockholders (needs, requirements, goals and expectations) and the governmental institutions by building a successful communication model to insure providing and implementing Successful - Sustainable projects in guidance of a solid Project planning and execution, was the main Pillar for the achievements I’ve done so far in Cisco by reaching the stockholders satisfaction.

Cisco systems might have been a good company to work for in the past.
Support Engineer (Former Employee), Research Triangle Park, NCMarch 13, 2015
Even though I study their classes, which are very hard, I would never go back to networking. They work you till death and the other employees are not trying to lose their job, so is a very caddy environment. People get hired and fired depending on who you know, that is just the sad truth.
