    Pros

    If you are working with a great group of people, you'll have flexible yet productive work schedule, make new friends at work who are more than supportive.
    Cisco provides great services and volunteering options to its employees.
    Cisco does feel like a community, if you are working with a nice group.

    Cons

    Then, there are groups where hiring and firing happen strictly based on personal connections. You might feel totally helpless when you become part of such a group, because work drama will take over your actual work.

    Advice to Management

    I'd say, if a group is frequently making lots of changes in resources, then something might be going on. Upper management should take a good look at this.
