    Pros

    Cisco is not going away anytime soon. The products are still the plumbing of the internet, regardless of recent marketing campaigns which emphasize other investments. The compensation structure is still competitive out of necessity.

    Cons

    HR is a complete mess and it has impacted the business. Cisco's current talent has become old and stale which is hurting innovation. Cisco is the technology industry version of the the guy that you went to high school with who was the homecoming king and starting QB who dated the prettiest girls in 1999. Now he is just an average guy in his 30's who is overweight (Revenue per employee) and is trying to buy his youth back with plastic surgery (M&A).

    Advice to Management

    Replace HR leadership.
