    Lots of BUs which give opportunity to move around if one wants to have change in the domain.
    Freedom to innovate

    Cons

    Job cuts every quarter
    No long term vision or planning shared with employees
    Attrition rate is high, and company is happy about losing talent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take time off to understand why engineers leave to find better opportunities outside. After all its there will be no CISCO if there aren't any bright folks around.
