"You need to take control of your career - create and manage your own development plan, insert yourself in projects that interest you, network with other parts of the company and most importantly, don't rely on someone recognizing you for a raise or promotion. You need to be very vocal for your career to grow at Cisco."

"Match work to employee skills/interests. Frequent reorganizations have resulted in people being put in jobs that don't utilize their best skills/talents thus making the work experience "a job" vs. a career based on passion"

"Depends on what someone is looking for from a job. Traditionally, employees need to wait 3-5 years for a merit raise, 5 or more years for a promotion, and frequent reorganizations make it difficult to get things done. On the flip side, great work from anywhere policy, great benefits, and overall, good people to work with."
