Cisco Systems Employee Review

Amazing company without a job security

Amazing people, amazing culture, amazing benefits. But all these things are not matched with job security. Every August they fire bunch of people in the name of limited restructuring and it is not based on performance , it is random. Lot of reorganization happening every 4-5 months so growth is very slow, yearly increment is 4-5% only.

Pros

Work culture, work life balance

Cons

Job security

Managers spoil the Work Culture.

Managers are nearly dumb here. They are technically poor and are only capable of pressuring the Engineers rather than supporting them technically.Poor Management !!!

Pros

Good Colleagues and Good Office Space

Cons

Management Management Poor Management

Not Satisfied and Ended up leaving the company in few month

This is not like other verbose review which do not give any real world idea inside the company . I tried to be realistic with this review based on my experience being in SD-Wan team Bangalore.Pros:Work culture is good. Co-workers are supportive.ConsDon't go with the "Best place to work" - tag1. Project is not that good. Most of the project usages legacy technology. Lot of unnecessaryprocess to do a simple job.2. There are no best practices are followed. Lot of people to do the same job, so different people follows different practices.3. Build process takes 6-7 hrs to complete. Sometimes one day to complete. So you can think how much development time got wasted.4. Not much innovation happens here.5. Everything depends on your managers. Even relocation benefit is not part of company policy. So please read your offer letter carefully. You will not get relocation benefit if later you move to new state.6. Managers are not supportive at all. The company has no strict work from office policy, but managers will force to come to office. So dont know whats going on here.7. There is no growth opportunity. You will end up learning nothing but some bunch of nonsense processes. Most of the good works goes to US and China team.8. SD-WAN Bangalore UI development manager is worst. Think twice before joining this project.9. Think twice before joining this company. Its better to work in small company rather than working here.
