I like the Campus and work culture at Cisco.

Dislikes

Until you resign, managers will not recognize your worth. Pay is less when compared with competitors. Promotions happen rarely. Managers will not allow you to take leaves.

Good people in other team Good pick and drop service

Dislikes

...get calls to work during late nights and weekends to test and provide updates. He and other seniors play a lot of politics and always make us pay heavy price. Very unemotional peoples. There is no support no help nor any guidance here and still so much criticism. We gave bad feedback in company survey to hope things will get improve but he started shouting in open calls and force us to rewrite a positive feedback. Guys this place is actually hell so dont join here. My personal life with family, friends and girlfriend is a complete mess because of this team and the work culture by sr management. Do not want any human beings to go through the sufferings like I am. I also posted also in glassdoor 2 times but they remove my post. Hope not remove here.

Rotation to new roles

Dislikes

1.There is no HR management. Your compensation is entirely in your manager’s hands who can be highly biased. 2. There is no market correction for your compensation. 3. Unrealistic expectation of working all day and night.

...any and exposure that you can only get in handful of companies around the world. Great compensation, benefits etc. Great office space and vibrant campus at Bengaluru. Unfortunately, most of my tenure was during COVID 19 and couldn't enjoy the benefits. Extremely employee friendly policies especially for the tech guys, not so much for the support functions like Finance which I was a part of.

Dislikes

American company can fire you anytime, downsize anytime and you wouldn't get another job with similar benefits easily. The place sort of puts you in a comfort zone which is difficult to get out from. I was employed during a period where huge downsizing was going on and hence the team culture was hampered and had a tough time tiding through. In support functions, everything depends on Budgets. Culture is extremely bureaucratic and yes you need to be a manager's favorite to grow and say goodbye to your self-respect unless your specific manager is true professional.
