    Pros

    Compensation and career opportunities are there for those who want to contribute towards the growth and transformation of the company.

    Cons

    Large corporation has its pluses and minuses. There is security against major economic downturns, individual influence and dollar impact is higher even at mid level in the organization. Decision making is solid but takes a bit longer due to impact to many stakeholders.

    Advice to Management

    Keep values and culture, one of the best.

  2. Great place to work. After layoff, I was eventually more upset about leaving Cisco than losing job.

    Pros

    Great people. Good community. Great use of own technology to enable collaboration and anywhere, anytime, any device connectivity. Home office setup was great!

    Cons

    A little too big and too redundant in some areas, causing duplicate efforts or unnecessary waiting for resolution of conflicts. Working to resolve, at least on operations side.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to dial back priorities. It's great to say you are pushing down decision making authority, but by definition you can't have 20 top priorities. It's okay to work on a lot of things, but be clearer about what the top/immediate priorities are within the business.
