    Current Employee - Sales in Irvine, CA (US)

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great IT infrastructure
    Great on-line tools to help with every area of your job
    People are always willing to help and go above and beyond

    Cons

    Large bureaucracy can tend to delay decision making longer than normal
    Seems like there was a re-org at the end of every fiscal year
    Had troubles figuring out their core competencies. I think they finally have it right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the core competency. Stress accountability at every level of the organization.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, management makes a real effort to help you grow in your career, friendly people, ability to work at home when needed, great culture.

    Cons

    They talk up the work/life balance but little is done to see that anyone actually has it. In fact the culture is such that working 24/7 is expected.
