"I worked for Cisco in my last job and have found it an excellent company to work for. I worked well with my team and manager. Unfortunately, we had multiple departments performing the same function and I was resourced out."

"I have been working at Cisco for the last 7 months since August of last year. It is a great company that values its employees and supports all their endeavors. However, in an effort to reduce their losses they have been laying off entire teams very abruptly. Therefore, I have decided to move out, if and before our team falls under such a decision."

"I have been working in Cisco for several years. Some projects were really great with good team. Couple of them were kind of ok with more work and time pressure. Overall a good experience to gain all sorts of expertise in all aspects like documentation, collaboration, development and testing."

"A good place to work, if you don't mind annual layoffs (they call them LRs - Labor Reductions) They work can be extremely interesting, but they are having a tough time learning how to become a best in class enterprise software supplier. They will make it, but enterprise software is very different than embedded software."
