    Pros

    diverse culture where people from all around the world come to work together. If you like to get things done then this is the place for you, some areas like support or QA are probably under appreciated and have weaker managers but most people are pretty nice and willing to help others learn.

    Cons

    You are expected to pick understand things quickly and learn on the job, if you can not perform within a quarter you will be replaced, although now that we are part of Cisco that might change. Cisco has also brought more red tape to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop importing Cisco red tape that is not helping us.
