I worked at Cisco Systems as a contractor (more than 5 years)

Pros

Lots of smart people, ever-changing technology at the core and edge level of networking, decent benefits (used to be better)

Cons

Layoffs are constant, and no one is safe. Cisco has gone from a once-cool Silicon Valley tech startup to a Big Company that is scrambling to stay relevant by buying up other startups (and then killing them).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Making changes to improve the stock price is one of the biggest mistakes any CEO can make--classic MBA case studies.
