    Pros

    John Chambers has created a dynamic and diverse leadership team that is focused on winning. Also, the company has such a broad set technologies and services that the TAM for Cisco is massive. Couple these things with a large cash position and a decent stock dividend and you get a company that is going to be hard to beat from a tech and financial perspective.

    Cons

    It's a huge company! Sometimes it is hard to navigate the organization and understand who is doing, or responsible, for what.
