    Former Employee - Director

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Market leadership, smart engineers, customer focus.

    Cons

    Has lost its way on the management side. Bureaucratic and extremely political at senior levels. Inability to choose decisive leadership and move quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in leaders, quit bringing in outside leaders that corrupt the culture that made the company successful.
