    Pros

    Salary for this area is still fairly competitive, and relatively stable if you're in a group which has critical mass at a non-HQ site

    Cons

    Very metrics driven mentality without questioning whether the metrics actually tell the story.

  2. Great for Enterprise, roller coaster for software or Consumer

    Pros

    Good benefits. Relaxed yet professional atmosphere. Strong focus on internal resources for career and knowledge growth.

    Cons

    As someone focused on consumer technologies I have seen multiple companies acquired and later shut down due to lack of understanding of how to merge them with Cisco's core business.

    Advice to Management

    Focus.
