Great company as long as you make it to the top 25% in the annual forced stack rating.

Director (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA (US)

I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGreat in giving people opportunity if they are willing and committed to work hard, enormous education opportunities (internal and external).

ConsQuestion on executive promotions and the executive leadership team, would need a big change to get back to the attractive employer it once was. The biggest issue is the complete lack of internal knowledge management.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
