Pros

Flexible Work environment (work remote/and onsite) , my Department managements are great. Judged on work performance, and no micro managing. My Team is a great group of people and very easy to work with. Many long term employees. Not at all what I expected from such a large company. (much better than expected) I would say that my time at Cisco so far has been the best employment experience in my entire career.

Cons

Contracting verses Employee. Wish to be converted to Employee.

Advice to Management

Model all Departments after CCAT Group. Consider converting more contractors who are preforming well to employee status.

    Pros

    Your paycheck didn't bounce even during the worst of the last recession.

    Cons

    You could remove 5 of the top 6 layers of management and no one would notice, except things would get done. Hopeless groups of managers having meetings about having meetings.

    Advice to Management

    next time you do layoffs start at the top down and you might get somewhere.
