Great Vision and Culture but no Job security
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) –  Mumbai, MaharashtraJuly 18, 2018
Cisco is a fantastic company to be in until the day comes when you are asked to leave, and they dont really need a reason for it. Its a simple re-org happening and they dont see you fitting the new structure, No matter how good you are, I believe its part of life and I accept it. What is not acceptable is that you are then on your own, there is no HR or anyone who steps in to help you find another job withing the Organisation. This clearly means the company doesnt care even if they loose good employees in this process.

What I truly like about this company is its Giving back culture. the work life balance and job flexibility.
Pros
Work from home, helps to balance Work and life. lot of other benefits
Cons
You can be asked to leave, just like that...

Data scientist(on contract) (Former Employee) –  bangaloreNovember 26, 2018
BEST OF CLASS BENEFITS, equally stress full environment, opportunity for growing is ok. but sometimes the upper management get really bossy and make you work as per they wish , bit of race within organization for recognition and fame. but still they are pretty good in availing facilities and other stuff.

Good Place to start your career
Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Bengaluru, KarnatakaSeptember 6, 2018
A good place to start your career. Did a lot of system programming at work and testing on Cisco switches. Learned a lot about system software implementation in C programming. Okayish Management. The hardest part of working at such a big organization is that sometimes things which are happening around you or your projects will be overwhelming because of scale and size, but use divide and conquer strategy and one would be fine

Pros

Salary and Benefits were not that great
