    Pros

    There are many great individuals at Cisco with great ideas and a desire to excel in every way. They are not in any single place though. Benefits are good, work life balance is good. The rare audience with Sr. Leaders is welcome, but is often too orchestrated. Takes a daring, bold individual to make things happen in a big company that is process bound.

    Cons

    Cisco has a very muddled mgmt structure and lacks clear focus or execution to deliver new technologies. Constantly slipping schedules, Product teams are not accountable for misses. Sales teams are littered with poor performers and really bad managers. Needs some work to clean up the mess.

    Advice to Management

    Churn and burn mentality has to stop. Develop people, Management needs to spend more time listening, less time talking. Value the Individual more than the Mgmt.
