Cisco Systems Employee

"My particular team was non-stop stressed out, unhappy, and had no idea what they were doing. They hired a junior level engineer with no intention of in depth on-boarding. Everyone was required to be in office at 8 am, yet stay until 9 pm or later; sometimes into the midnight hours. Most of the team quit."

Cisco Systems Employee

"Cisco is a company filled with very strong and intelligent sales people. But there is too much middle management and lots of failed attempts at launching new solutions into the market, at least in collaboration. They have also continued to lay people off every single FY for the past 3 years, though the company has over $50 billion in the bank. Kinda sad."

Technical Support Specialist

"I didn't have much if any contact with my supervisor in this position. He worked in another state. When I started the Cisco campus had 4 buildings and just over 1000 employees. When I left one building and under 500 people working that location. I was on sight support for that network but when Cisco downsized they moved most of the data centers to Dallas."
