A very great place to work, it feels like a company that cares even though it is a large company

Software Engineer (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA (US)

ProsAn excellent yearly review system that results in an impressive bonus. Management is accesible and each year you have an opportunity to have a lunch with the CEO (and many others with the same birthday of the month) and ask him a question if you want to. Egronimic services are available to customize your desk if that is what you need.

Consthere could be more effort to compete with the tech start ups in providing a more interesting workplace. The offices are a bit drab.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Getting too difficult to get things accomplished

    Program Manager (Former Employee) San Jose, CA (US)

    I worked at Cisco Systems

    Pros: Lots of interesting technology and challenging projects to work on.… Cons: Too many directors and VP's, most of whom are too concerned with agreeing with and keeping their bosses happy than with making real progress. … Advice to Senior Management: Make a decision on what to do about Linksys and Scientific Atlanta product… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
