    Pros

    Great benefits
     great use of collaboration technologies they we sold.
    A lot of autonomy
    "work is an activity not a location"

    Cons

    Lacks team environment
    Working all the time due to amazing technology, there is never a day off.
    Cisco managers hire to what has worked in the past, the market has changed and they need to mix it up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know your talent and provide opportunities for internal recruiting.
    More diversity, not all white males..
