Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Staying on the cutting edge stuff. Great engineers and teamwork.

Cons

Management shuffle constantly. Some good (heck, some great)... some thin skinned and odd.

Advice to Management

Instead of praying for a positive outcome, stand up and do what you're paid to do>>>> manage people, process, problems, expectations. John Chambers, pay the taxes! You built your nut on the INET. Pay it back!
