    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    big company. lots of folks, lots of projects. Potential to find something you like very high. You can also relocate to any part of the world for projects. health benefits are becoming more expensive every year. There are *great* visionaries in Cisco. They get the big leaps in technology right - every time. The incentive systems have become squeaky but still work to a large extent. We need to reform and get a bit of the old Cisco magic back.

    Cons

    Big company drags you down. The processes. Strong pull to the median. Not much transparency. Some folks get by with 40 hour weeks whereas others kill themselves with 100 hour weeks. Not a fair place by any means.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline bloated middle management.

    Pros

    Constant change. Interesting products and lots of them. Company ideals are admirable.

    Cons

    Constant change. Globalisation means jobs moving from the U.S. to India.

    Advice to Management

    Cut back on employee "feel good" programs; what feels good right now is having a job. Get a new ad company; the TelePresence ads and brand building are brutally awful.
