Fun place to work at
Software Engineer2 (Current Employee), San jose, CaliforniaNovember 19, 2014
Typical day is very constructive at Cisco. I have learnt a lot working with the team at Cisco. The management was good and so were the co-workers. The hardest part of the job was owning a complete component and working on it. The most enjoyable part was having flexible timing

Its become too big of a company
Software Engineer IV (Former Employee), Boxborough, MANovember 19, 2014
Pros: good work life balance, competiive pay
Cons: too much satellites
Too much politics
good work life balance, telecommuting options. Opportunities for growth and movement limited if not located in the bay area. I worked in a very smart group of experienced talented engineers. Good place to be if you want to witness firsthand the inefficiencies of a giant engineering organization.

Opportunities for growth and movement – more... limited if not located in the bay area. A game of musical chairs at the VP/SVP level, new leader comes in every 12 - 18 months with big ambitions for the team, then eventually succumbs to the bureaucracy or the inter-BU politics. Did I mention the periodic layoffs ? – less

Cisco pays well and has many great people to work with
Knowledge Management / Technical Writing (Former Employee), Research Triangle Park, NCNovember 18, 2014
Pros: great people who do what it takes to get the job done.
Cons: long hours and not very good job security.
The people at Cisco are some of the best that I have ever worked with. They are very professional with a very good work ethic.

Cisco pays well; however, you work a lot of hours for that money, which frequently impacts work/life balance.

Surprisingly a lot of those very talented people get let go every year in Cisco's yearly resource actions. It is – more... due to these yearly resource actions and loss of talented people that there is an increasing concern about not having job security. – less

Great place to work
Integrated Business Planner (Current Employee), San Jose, CANovember 18, 2014
For the most part, I've had some great leaders that pushed me to excel, got me out of my comfort zone and stood besides me to support and encourage. But I have seen that the different organizations function differently. Some are very competitive while others are more collaborative.
