"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've worked for Cisco since 2007. I've found it to be a company that changes technical direction and lay off people that are in technologies that no longer seem "Hot" at that time. The company employs 70K+ employees and lays off 8 to 10K one day and hires 11K the very next. Employees are at the mercy of their relationships with mgmt. If mgmt does not like you, don't expect a raise, bonus or promotion. In fact if mgmt doesn't like you, you better update your resume and start looking for a new place because you will be laid off. A layoff at Cisco is their way of getting rid of people mgmt does not get along with, even if its because you didn't agree with the way a situation was handled."

"Worked for Cisco (TAC) for about 9 years. I love troubleshooting but it has become very political and cut-throat. The older, wise guys have been replaced by arrogant fresh-out-of-college kids, that have no clue, and it has become a challenge to get cases solved. I met guys that would re-arrange their lives for Cisco, and those are the ones that are now looking for a way out before another "limited restructuring" phase rolls along. Sad. I can only hope Cisco will reconsider and accept that cheap doesn't mean better."

"I have been working at Cisco for over 15 years (10 years as a full-time employee, and last 5 years as a contractor). It has been an enjoyable ride as I've been able to get experience in different areas including testing, customer support, and currently team leadership."

"Great company to work for. Employees are great people, salary is better than average, but it has become too big and requires new blood. Seems to be struggling to reinvent itself."
