"I worked for Cisco Systems as a Software Development Engineering Intern with the NOSTG team at Boxborough , MA. I found the company culture to be excellent and I also had the opportunity to learn a lot during the twelve weeks of my internship. I also had the excellent opportunity of getting to meet some of the stalwarts in the Networks industry and also got to interact with them on a one-on-one basis. Overall , the experience was better than I could have ever hoped for."

What do you like about working at Cisco Systems?

"I enjoyed that they were a top company. If you were in sales, you did well. Other than that, you are just a number to the corporate headquarters."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"They only praise people in sales. I was there for four years and did not even have one performance review or raise."

What don't you like about working at Cisco Systems?

"The company's internal systems don't work well together. There are too many people, and the processes are constantly broke. They have really poor management and metrics that don't work. I reported to a manager in California, but supported a director in WA. They both hated each other and I was stuck in the middle. Neither of them were good people managers. They don't train lower manager levels very well."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"They should not put people into management positions just because they are good at their jobs. That doesn't mean they can manage people."
