Great Company
Support Engineer (Current Employee), Morrisville, NCNovember 7, 2014
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.

Pros: job stability, work life balance

Cult like culture, very poor internal business processes
Category & Supply Manager - Technology (Current Employee), Research Triangle Park, NCOctober 22, 2014
Pros: i guess it would depend on which function you work in. for procurement, none come to mind.
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. Procurement function is entirely reactive vs. strategic. Very poor procurement data analytics. Culture is very poor. One Director described Cisco as being like a fraternity "Sure you get – more... hazed when you join, but you get to turn around and haze the next guy". – less
