    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 3 years)


    Work life balance, Salary, Campus and trainings are great
    Work Culture is good, there are many opportunities in Cisco if you want to explore in different areas
    Company policies are very good like WFH, Sick leave and others


    some projects/managers are not good but you can switch to other projects after completing one year
    Some of the managers are idiots , do not listen to employees and bringing bad name for Cisco

    Advice to Management

    360 degree feedback system is not efficient, for managers who don't value their engineer their is nothing can be done
