    Pros

    Decent people, Flexibility (work from home), Benefits, Always learning something new, Never bored, Worldwide collaboration.

    Cons

    Zero job security or respect - layoffs and frequent outsourcing, infrequent raises, many technical positions not universally recognized but are only valuable to Cisco, 24/7 work, reactive management who don't stick up for their reports and are afraid to escalate issues upstream, stressful panic every end of quarter to micromanage all production support activities in order to meet quarterly earnings.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of too many overpaid Directors and VP's, reduce working from home to create real face-to-face teamwork, seriously embrace job rotation and career advancement, fairly start giving out average or lesser ratings to management versus typical above average ones (regardless of their performances), eliminate unnecessary, expensive travel and costly celebrations, allow travel only to those who need to be on a production floor or in a customer meeting, eliminate bonuses when layoffs, respect seniority and (older) ages, consolidate buildings to eliminate the vast, unused, wasted cubicle or open concept spaces.
