    Pros

    Pedigree of computer networking background. Great place to advance your product management, product marketing, Ethernet networking domain expertise. There are some great people there.

    Cons

    Abusive languages, turf wars among business units. Your product will get de-positioned by other BUs. And you will have to de-position them too. The company is terrible at getting multiple BUs to work together and build a cohesive system. In the era of modern data center convergence, this is a deadly issue that will cost Cisco continuous market share decline in Ethernet switching.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change R&D organization structure, reward cross-BU alignment and collaboration.
