    Pros

    Good routing products with a brand name

    Cons

    Market is shifting toward SDN and Cisco is not focused at all internally to. They realize it internally, but no one is doing anything to fix it, except for the high political groupies that have formed to protect each other! Politics is beyond believe in Cisco.

    Disapproves of CEO
