DATA ANALYST (Current Employee), Herndon VA – November 4, 2014
Cisco used to be a really great company to work for. The morale has gotten pretty low over the years with the layoffs and the company restructures. If your in sales then it's a great company to work for.

Pros: ability to move around the company
Cons: work life balance
Great Place to work. A typical work day is starting your shift around 0700 - 0800. Taking cases, working with customers, working on your back log, communicating with other departments within the organization until your shift is over or until your work is done.
Cisco Advanced Services offers great exposure to some of the most complex projects in the networking domain. You get to work on large and complex assignments. The quality of people inside the firm is tremendous and there is no limit to how much you can learn from your peers and the ecosystem.
Cult like culture, very poor internal business processes
Category & Supply Manager - Technology (Current Employee), Research Triangle Park, NC – October 22, 2014

Cons: if not in san jose, very isolated. procurement function is very political, ineffective, and reactive.
Hired as the result of a limited restructure in Dec 2013. Never met my manager. Extremely poor assimilation process. Complete disregard for my career expectations.
