    Pros

    - Flexible work hours. You can work from anywhere.
    - 401K, HR benefits.

    Cons

    - No Career development.
    - It's difficult to move up, or get a raise or promotion. Managers don't have enough budget to promote their people.

    Advice to Management

    - It's time to take a look at the internal people before looking outside Cisco.


  2. In general, Cisco has been good to me, but times are changing and employees are being forgotten.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, great annual bonuses, smart people, large enough to move around, flexible.

    Cons

    More and more is being taken away from employees, the Cisco family is becoming a thing of the past.

    Advice to Management

    At some point, the people have to be prioritized higher again. To continue to ask for more without the employees seeing any additional benefits will continue to contribute to attrition.
