Pros: smartest people in the industry, will learn a lot
Cons: weak monetary compensation and job security
Cisco is overall a great company to work for.
I've had the pleasure of being paired with the best and brightest in the industry and have been able to learn from them in many ways.
I appreciate all the time I've spent here.
I've also had the opportunity to continually receive great leadership and support from my managers. They have always pushed me – more... to achieve the most and have regularly checked in to make sure my priorities are setup in a way to balance work, life, and goals.
The only downfall I've seen has been the company shift and restructuring that has hurt a lot of teams. Many great engineers have left the company because of this. Also, the compensation for my level of effort and expertise leaves a bit to be desired. I would appreciate Cisco spending more time recognizing effort and success by directly increasing salary to those who make projects successful. – less
