Pros

Cisco is a good Blue Chip technology company. It provides a lot of stability and is solidly profitable and investing in new areas.

Cons

Most of its profits are from heritage products that are facing tougher competition. The company needs to find the next generation of products (and profits) that will continue to support the lifestyle of the past.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize that the company is more like IBM than a startup.

    Pros

    Great in giving people opportunity if they are willing and committed to work hard, enormous education opportunities (internal and external).

    Cons

    Question on executive promotions and the executive leadership team, would need a big change to get back to the attractive employer it once was. The biggest issue is the complete lack of internal knowledge management.
