Approves of CEO

Pros

Opportunities to work on different things and gain new skills or exposure to new responsibilities.

Cons

Lackluster compensation; the company has taken away every employee perk and redistributed the wealth to directors who do no work. Management takes care of management for compensation but not individual contributors.

Advice to Management

Don't just tell Fortune Magazine you value employees. Show it by compensation and benefits.

    Pros

    I have been contracting with Cisco (under 3 different bosses) for over one year. They never want to pay overtime. Pros: There is a lot of work.

    Cons

    There is too much work --- on average 10- 12 hours per day w/o OT.

    Advice to Management

    Pay Cisco contractors without any hassle.
