"Cisco Systems is a great company. But like every company there are going to be ups and down, good days and bad days. The IT field has grown tremendously over the last 25 years. And it will continue to grow, much more than we'll be able to keep up with the change. Even though there have been a few cutbacks. Cisco gets my A1 rating on quality."

"I worked for Cisco 4 years in Engineering Central Services before being impacted by a workforce reduction. I came back as a contractor in the same capacity. I enjoy the people, work, and challenges at Cisco. As we transition in our product offerings, the company continues to have layoffs a few times a year. That impacts morale in a negative way. The company is using more contractors while the permanent workforce reduces. I will continue working here as the ability to work remotely from home is very appealing."

"Have been here at Cisco for 8 years and get great reviews from my boss but ZERO raises (except for a promotion). Work-life balance stinks, Cisco forges bad reviews of older employees to get rid of them and there are regular layoffs despite great performance by the company. (A Cisco co-worker described the layoffs as a General executing many of his own soldiers after they've defeated a hated enemy)."

"In my work with Cisco Systems Inc I had considerable success in the delivery of collaborative technology systems and product lines at Cisco Systems for corporate communications systems and for Internet based call centers. I also was one of the team leaders at Cisco to develop and implement a complete change over in their ERP, CRM and oderability and fulfillment systems."
