fun to work, good flexible options, some managers like to micromanage
Test Engineer (Current Employee), San Jose, CAOctober 6, 2014
Pros: flexibility, good training accessible on line or in person
Cons: constant layoffs, engineering work leaving the country to india and china
Cisco culture is changing, you need to have you resume ready at all times because layoffs are imminent every year. Good flexibility. Promotions are difficult and nearly impossible to move around.

It is a decent place
Software Engineer (Current Employee), San Jose, CAOctober 1, 2014
There is a wealth of information and people are willing to help. Getting a good manager takes luck, though, if you do get a good one, life balance will be a priority. While here, I learned a great many thing; as there are a lot of opportunities to learn and to gain certifications.

Not a good place to work
Software Engineer (Current Employee), San Jose, CASeptember 26, 2014
Pros: medical benefits
Cons: too many
I've had a bad experience with my group and it might not speak for the whole of Cisco. There is too much bureaucracy and success is more based on how well you can suck up to your boss rather than performance and professional ethics.
My experience at this company has been extremely bad and I cant wait to leave. I have been bullied and borderline harassed – more... and working long hours was taken for granted with no appreciation whatsoever. People here have very little regard for anyone who reports to them. I wonder how most of them ended up in the management chain. – less

A good job for someone who needs the experience
Telepresence Engineer (Current Employee), Austin, TXSeptember 25, 2014
Pros: great envrionment to get started in the it world
Cons: bad benefits, bad management, poor employee utilization and performance.
I consider myself a mid to upper level IP Telephony / Unified Communications engineer and would work at Cisco if I were a tier 3 blue badge. I was put into the position because my previous job had to go through mass layoffs due to financial distress. No advancement unless a position opens and pay increases need to be practically begged for. I come from – more... a military background and the management for my team in the RMS NOC was pitiful at best. Employees would consistently show up late, work from home without permission, or just not show up at all. Management has done little to nothing to fix the issue.
The experience in a Cisco environment is good for those looking to get into this field but not good for someone already in the field looking to advance. No benefits if you are a red badge which means no time off, no holidays, medical coverage is extremely expensive, luckily I have the VA, and the 401K is a joke, assuming you work long enough to get that perk. – less
