Manager (Current Employee), Research Triangle Park, NCSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: work from home, great benefits, challenging work.
Cons: constant limiting restructuring, lack of solid strategy.
At Cisco you own your own destiny. You can grow and move to many different roles in different organizations.

Great Co-workers!

Nice work/life balance in that you can work at home when needed and some teams are more remote. Global touch.

used to be good place, but drifting towards a big mess
Member of the AMP cloud platform team (Current Employee), San Jose, CASeptember 14, 2014
Cisco used to be nice place, lately with layoffs every year, it is a very insecure place for anyone wants to build a career. One has to see overall benefits before working there.

Work culture was very competitive
Project Manager (Current Employee), San Jose, CASeptember 4, 2014
Pros: work from home. late night meetings made it real hard to show up on time in the morning for work, so this was the biggest perk.
Cons: being a contractor no benefits were provided
In Cisco i had the opportunity to work in 4 different projects and that made me more versatile.

In the most recent project i was part of the PMO/ERMO -

Handling the Transition aspect of scopes that part of Quarterly release.
Analyze each project in all phases of PLC (From BRD to all the way Go-live).
Team work was the key as we had to deal with both – more... Offshore/Onshore Teams.
Getting less time for family as during the last stages of the project it became a round the clock cycle.
New issues kept it interesting. – less

Marketing Operations Channel Manager (Former Employee), Research Triangle Park, NCSeptember 3, 2014
Pros: learning organization with plenty of responsibility; remote options
Cons: management can be excellent or not so seasoned
This was my first corporate experience. Great exposure to how to adapt the business to a changing market and grow your skills. Wide range of management being not experienced to very saavy. Just be sure you join a team where you have the fit and expect to transition on a 1-2 year cycle to stay relevant.
