    Former Employee - Business Development Manager in Dubai (United Arab Emirates)

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Wide and diverse technologies and sales methodologies to learn
    - Best operations and employee tools
    - Space to grow in the organization

    Cons

    - Moderate salaries compared to other smaller companies but better than most giant companies
    - low chances to overachieve as the bar became too high
    - Away from Software industry

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Review the salary structure compared to other vendors
    - Evolve your GTM strategy inline with the current political , financial and technological WW changes
    - Internal managers need a LOT of personal development to become leaders i.e not every good sales man can be a sales manager and not every good sales manager can be a GM , sales or systems engineer management is totally different from people management which you need to develop a LOT .

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of rewards for top performers. Learning and adapting to change are encouraged.

    Cons

    Lots of work for everyone. Work-life balance is not always honored. If your work is valued, the more hours you put in, the better rating you can get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice work-life balance, encourage it, model it.
