    Pros

    Cisco offers excellent compensation. It is a dynamic, exciting workplace where industry's top talent are welcome to leave and return, bringing with them more industry knowledge and experience.

    Cons

    The company has a somewhat arbitrary measurement of individuals in order to weed out the bottom feeders; the program works sometimes but also can lead to unexpected and counterproductive results.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People are your number one resource.
