    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have been working for Cisco for more than 2 years now. I joined Cisco straight out of college. I will forever be grateful to Cisco for helping me build myself from scratch. Even though I am here on Glassdoor looking for a job switch now, I am amused to see how high my standards have become, all because the way I am treated here at Cisco. They might not be paying me as much as I want but they sure are treating me well. > Best work culture ever. Saying this based on what I hear from friends working in other companies. > You will know they actually care about you and Cisco will go out of its way to show it to you. > Excellent leadership team, their ideas and visions flow through the entire company and keep us all on the right path. > Got to learn a lot in the past 2 years, all thanks to the management and teammates. > Satisfactory compensation.

    Cons

    The role that I am in is customer-facing and with a support role, comes its own challenges. Everyone knows Cisco TAC and appreciates it for the work we do. At the same time, being a TAC engineer can get exhausting for the following reasons. 1. We are supposed to work 8 hours a day but the amount of work can never be wrapped up in that time. Even though we hand off after our shifts, you will always have work pending on you. 2. Escalations may exhaust you now and then. 3. In the past 2 years that I have spent here, I have only heard of cost-cutting measures taken to save the business and keep it growing. Although I understand the decisions taken from a business point of view, but they still need to make promotions more frequent and rewarding. 4. The sheer amount of talent present in Cisco makes it very hard for you to get promoted. Doing your day-to-day job well is not good enough, you have to show the extra efforts you have put in to get promoted. This kind of challenging work environment is great for growth as long as the promotion we get justifies the efforts. 6. Seen senior talent leave for the above reason.

    Pros

    Ample of opportunities. You are free to switch teams after one year of service. In that way you can choose your career path. Best part is that you might be given salary hike and promotion, which may not happen if you stick to the team.

    Cons

    Fear of layoff is always there.
