Great benefits

    Pros

    Huge opportunity for the company translates into many interesting possibilities for future projects. The feeling inside the company is still positive.

    Cons

    Cisco has become a very large company in many ways that leave some people with feelings that the management is impersonal.

    Advice to Management

    Continue innovating into new technologies, don't stand on the past successes. Market domination comes from being early into a market that few others see or understand.
