    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Still a lot of new initiatives, programs. Long term projects, and high level of IT investment, and high impact projects

    Cons

    lots of bureaucracy. A lot of management and program overhead, short on SME knowledge and people doing solution development work. ... Off Shoring means we loose knowledgable people, and projects are not effectively quoted, delivered. Need to have internal SME's Techleads, Analysts, so delivery can be on time to business needs, on budget.

    Pros

    What pros? Come on, everyone I work with wants to leave. Some are actively looking outside the company. Let me see if I can think of a Pro.......pay...sucks.....management.....sucks, nope no Pros.

    Cons

    See above. But let me elaborate. Stocks suck. Company does not have a clue or identity any longer. Management in my team seems extremely distracted, even during my 1:1. Clueless is a good word to use. My annual evaluation was just a repeat of everything I used for my goals, nothing of substance, no personal assessment. Just lame. How fast can I get out of here! Help.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new job that you actually care about. Your lack of caring, concern and ethics is very transparent!
