    Pros

    - compensation is fair and generally merit based - good work life balance in most teams

    Cons

    - work isn't very challenging - personal growth isn't great - middle management politics - horrible internally developed engineering tools - promotions aren't merit based (compensation is, however)

    Advice to Management

    - Focus on good products, revenues will follow - Go easy on process, focus on fun - Scrap the dreadful Cisco engineering tools, move to modern systems - Don't wait for a downturn to cut the flab
