Good but not best
Technical Leader (Former Employee) –  Bangalore, IndiaDecember 12, 2017
Cisco is a good place to work, but not the best. Sometimes you will feel stagnated. Sometimes management decisions are slow. Office culture is good and professional

Great place to work but direction missing
Software Engineer (Developer) (Current Employee) –  Bengaluru, KarnatakaNovember 2, 2017
I have been with Cisco for nearly 5 years. Recently all the product development has moved to Agile methodology of development. The mid management still have waterfall mindset and so expect status updates rather than allowing Engineering teams to drive the product. Some of the product owners have no clue on the requirements and depend entirely on Engineering to collect the requirements.
Workplace culture is debatable. There is a divide between people working from different locations professionally.
Need to encourage people to try out risky ventures. Building a number of startup's within the campus may be a good idea. Top level management makes mistakes in acquisitions now & then, so if internally startup's fail it could be a good learning on the type of market to target and the kind of companies to acquire.
