    Former Employee - Manager in San Jose, CA (US)

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, competitive salaries. Fairly easy to move around within the company. Many competent and caring people on board.

    Cons

    Competing product lines and priorities. Way too many corporate initiatives to be effective. Work/life balance very difficult due to virtual global teams and complexity of stakeholders involved in almost any decision of consequence. Management increasingly disconnected from the technical community.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to technical thought leaders. Trim product lines and features...
