Very poor experience following acquisition
I joined as part of an acquisition. Poor integration experience. A backward step in terms of career progression. Pay well but too many layers of management and too much politicking.

Amazing place to work
Amazing place to work, work can get quite challenging at times though. I would recommend that you join Cisco as it is a great place to work and is doing some really amazing things.

N/a
Size of company means hard to collaborate. Pay is fairer for FTE's but a lot go through agencies and pay is lower (or so it seems). Work life balance is good and support by closer team.

Flexible working a bonus
A great place to work depending on role. The ability to work from home or office or customer workplace is a bonus. The Cisco package in terms of bonus, healthcare etc is the best I have experienced.

Don't Stay too long
If you stay longer than 5 years in Cisco you will regret it. The work from home benefits and the travel can be fun to begin with but progression and job advanvement is not very good.

Information is not shared among teams.
Relaxed environment but extensive competition among the teams. Even with flexible working hours, you tend to work very long hours in order to deliver.
Pros
Flexible working hours
Cons
Long Hours

Interesting, fast-paced working enviroment
I learnt a number of skills after becoming a cross-functional Apprentice at Cisco back in 2014. The Apprenticeship allows you to rotate around the business whilst getting exposed to various roles within the company.

The hardest part of the job is being a part of a team which is spread across the globe. However, this means there is a lot of business travel which has given me great experiences in the professional world.

Good but political
A good culture and if the face fits you will thrive. The social element of working at Cisco is fantastic hence the number 1 company to work for. The contractor element is disparaging at times. As i said if you have the right contacts, profile and ruthlessness you will do will.
