a bit behind the 8-ball on some of the more cutting-edge or progressive job benefits; however, they are catching up quickly!

It was great in the beginning and all companies change over time
operations manager (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAJanuary 21, 2016
I have a lot to be thankful for while being employed at Cisco. The working environment in 1994 was great!!! Over time, as with most companies, that grow, the work environment and management changed.

Company Culture is its Strength
Sr. Mgr., Sales Ops, US Enterprise Strategy & Plng (Former Employee) –  Oro Valley, AZJanuary 20, 2016
Strongest attribute is its work culture: highly collaborative environment for a company of its large size. With its matrix organization, there exists a premium on collective cross functioning cooperation throughout the organization. This approach brings together a large number of high level people focused on a common goal.....very effective.

Good work life balance
Enterprise Business Architecture (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCJanuary 18, 2016
Cisco provides a good work life balance for it's employees. There are a lot of great learning opportunities for everyone willing to learn.

As any other large companies, things move a lot slower and hence could get very frustrating to watch such a great company dying a slow death.
Pros
great work life balance, work from home, flexible hours
Cons
Moves at snail's pace

Overall great place to work
Administrative Assistant 3 (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CAJanuary 14, 2016
I had a great experience all the years I went back and forth to Cisco. The best part was how much they took care of their employee's when needing time off or the chance to work from home. The work life balance was very important and the group of people I worked with were awesome.
Pros
work from home opportunities
Cons
Clicky groups in the Admin world

Stressful job but fun at the same time
Financial Analyst (Sales Operation Department) (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAJanuary 12, 2016
Meetings, phone calls and computer inputting, a lot of conversation needed to different departments and related personnel to get the work done. Very few time to chat with co-workers unless work related. The hardest part of the job was to trying to help other department to understand the customer needs and to find a way to fulfill the customer order requests. The most enjoyable part of the job was when all the problems were resolved after everyone hard working.
Pros
Recognition, sometimes provide foods when work later
Cons
Non stop working early morning and late night, sometimes in the middle of the night will need to attend meetings

Great Company to Work For
Specialist.Brand Strategy & Management (Former Employee) –  Lawrenceville, GAJanuary 3, 2016
The thing I loved most about working for Cisco was the people. My co-workers were great and would do whatever they could to help each other out.
There was no typical day at Cisco, being flexible and a team player were skills needed in order to get the job done. Because of this I learned many skills that I ordinarily wouldn't have.
The hardest part of the job was trying to do more with less resources. Job security has also become a little precarious due to annual company reorganizations.
Pros
Ability to learn new things regardless of job title. The people and the company culture.
Cons
Projects became more and more complex, but we weren't given any additional resources
