    File years of nightmare at cisco

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Jose, CA (US)

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros: At least, you have a job Cons: "Cisco used to be a good company but now not anymore". I hared about this from so many current-ciscos and ex-ciscos.

Connect employee's feedback for managers to the manager's… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
