I have been working at Cisco Systems

Pros

Good people, very strong core products, generous time off and still a pretty good work environment, though less so than a few years ago

Cons

Boards and councils model means lack of accountability and it can be maddening trying to figure out who is in charge; managers are like Supreme Court justices, they only leave upon death so promotions are nearly non-existent; don't complain about my travel expenses when you've got $40B in the bank. Do you want me to call on customers or not?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Somebody please step up and take charge. We need leadership, not management. And try promoting excellent people from within. Every time you bring in an outsider, we in the field are underwhelmed.
