    Great for new employees and if you work 12-14 hours every day

    Jun 15, 2021 - Technical Team Lead TCE à Boston, MA

    Avantages

    Good trainings are available to all Cisco employees. Excellent company for new young Padawan and if you join at management level

    Inconvénients

    As a global company it is expected to work atleast 12-14 hours a day. No concept of work life balance. While it is good to do that when you join the company for first year but expecting that for all the years something is a miss. Opportunities of growth only available if you are in the same location and bonding with management. There is no concept of providing performance feedback of your peers to level above them anonymously.

    Cisco is transforming its business and its employee experience

    Avantages

    Inspiring CEO along with some other amazing leaders Work life balance appears good for the team I'm on Commitment to inclusion, diversity and social justice internally and externally Flexible, hybrid work options Smart and collaborative coworkers throughout company

    Inconvénients

    Cisco is transforming its business amidst a profound technology change so it can be bumpy with layoffs and reorganizations. Just be prepared and aware. With some teams, there promotion opportunities beyond director are pretty hard so can force good people to leave if they want to grow title/career. The compensation is not very competitive with digitally native companies initially and over the long haul.

    The grass isn't always greener...

    Avantages

    I decided to wait almost a year after leaving the company before posting a review. The primary reason being is that when you decide to leave an organization it is usually because there is something there that isn't aligning with you or what you want anymore however, the grass is not always greener someplace else. This has been my experience. In fact, the appreciation I have for the company has grown so much in my time away that I would really like to return. The company truly believes on promoting within and as an employee you are encouraged to grow your career within the organization and learn new skills by taking different positions. Benefits are excellent. Cisco is the industry leader for networking and now cloud. It is sometimes easy to forget that on the daily grind but you are working for the company that everyone looks to for network and infrastructure standards. Culture within the business units managing product lines give you a lot of freedom to be innovative and creative in your approach to your role. In most cases you are given a fair amount of autonomy and control over how you do your job provided that it aligns with the strategic objectives. Benefits, 401k match, RSUs and ESPP are amazing. And while the salaries aren't the top of the industry, they are above market and pretty competitive.

    Inconvénients

    Cisco can be a machine. There isn't an overt demand for all of your time (even the time outside of work) but more of a subtle, slight encouragement to always be on. If you are not careful, you will live, sleep and eat Cisco 24x7. Don't get me wrong, this is 100% a choice and if you are aware of this subtlety in the culture it is very easy to set appropriate boundaries that will be respected by the company and leadership team. If you don't like where you are in Cisco or what you are working on, give it 6 months because you will be reorg'd. While it is sometimes necessary to realign the company to meet competitive threats or market demands, reorganizing the company once a year is excessive and tends to create a distrusting environment for the rank and file which makes being a leader in the organize challenging. There is a loss of momentum and motivation that occurs a few months before and a few months after reorgs so this leaves the company being effective at delivery and execution only about 70% of the time. While Cisco attracts some bright, motivated people the truth of the matter is you are either cut out for the company and its culture or you're not. If you aren't it will be painfully obvious to you and those around you. Sadly as a leader it is hard to cut dead weight from the team and the only really accepted way is via layoffs, which is why the company reorgs once a year despite the company line about the reorgs.
