    I have been working at Cisco Systems as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great company culture. Great People. Great Salary.

    Cons

    Some challenging customers and clients.

    Advice to Management

    Global restructuring when we've had record profits and performance means I and countless other contractors (not mentioned in the cutback announcement) am SOL and job hunting again, despite great work. John Chambers can spin it all he wants....this is corporate greed at it's finest. Outsourcing jobs to India when the Americas made the record profits so stakeholders get good payouts and he gets a big retirement umbrella. Contractors MAKE the company money - so my personal professional opinion is that Cisco (John Chambers) is HURTING the company and countless contractors with this decision.
