    Disapproves of CEO

    Flexible work environment; work from home
    Lots of employment opportunities / chances to move around the company

    Cons

    Job satisfaction really depends on who you work for, what dept you're in
    The new open workspace is terrible
    Zero help for commuters
    Working from home means sacrificing your career
    Base salaries are laughable; perks benefits and total comp dwindeling
    Re-orgs are status quo
    The company does not do enough to retain top talent

    Advice to Management

    Start looking out for the little guy again.
    Ensure Cisco remains competitive; keep up with the perks offered by other companies
