Many of the student in my classes were working professionals that wanted to become Cisco CCNA engineers. Classes and labs were always full. Many of the students would return to the campus to let me and other instructors know how they apricated the information that we shared with them. Because of their training they were able to get certified and obtain new job.

Pros and Cons
As you share through teaching you instill your knowledge, as the students provide feedback
Working 12 to 14 hour days can ware on you as the semester progresses .

I worked with Cisco almost 5 yrs and they kept me on contract all the time. They moved me around and I was happy to locate to work. But the important thing I dislike is manager was unfair and they were favor of their people who worked long time for them. The Co-worker wasn’t corporate in team work, wasn’t share information about work while they needed my help to work. And when issues come up they’re always listen to their people and gave me a threatening to laid off. I’m very happy when I left Cisco and never came back. They called several times to rehire but thank you, I don’t want to work in unfair management.

Pros and Cons
Flexible time
Unfair management

Supported majority of team to build both Technical skills and Leadership skills. Technical skills included team 100% got their CCNA, over 80% got their CCNP and several team members got CCIE. Supported team to build on their Leadership skills by learning to be able to voice their concerns in the meetings, be able to present powerfully and be happy.

Pros and Cons
The company supported team to expand on their technical skills and well rewarded financially.
We enjoyed our job to the point that we lost track of time to balance work and family.

Cisco's personnel policy, encompassing continuous ranking and firing of the "bottom 5%" results in a highly competitive and uncooperative work environment. In general, people attempt to climb to the top of the heap on the backs of their defeated co-workers. Incentive is provided to compete instead of cooperate, leading to painful, gridlocked decision making at all levels of the organization (due to the impetus to criticize the ideas of peers, then steal those ideas). Performance reviews are, in effect, replaced by regular layoffs. Continual paranoia is the pervading feeling and is necessary for survival in the Cisco corporate culture.

Pros and Cons
Good compensation and benefits, good perks at work (free coffee and snacks).
Toxic work environment, probably due to the "bottom 5%" policy.
