    Pros

    My team has some of the most talented and amazing people I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    Cisco is bleeding talent. Our best resources are running for the exit in numbers that are simply staggering. What's left behind are mainly those unwilling or unable to look for another job in the current economy.
    With rare exception, management is woefully ignorant of what it takes to be competitive in the current market and seems completely disconnected from reality. It's a miracle if a project get's out the door at all rather than being defunded/descoped mid-stream. What a tragedy that such a once great company is now drowning under the weight of bad decisions from bloated bureaucracy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are not too big to fail. Cisco is living off the reputation it once had and a lack of competition that is rapidly disappearing. You can't keep treating your employees and customers like they have no other options without seriously motivating both to prove you wrong.
