    Pros

    Cisco is a good Blue Chip technology company. It provides a lot of stability and is solidly profitable and investing in new areas.

    Cons

    Most of its profits are from heritage products that are facing tougher competition. The company needs to find the next generation of products (and profits) that will continue to support the lifestyle of the past.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that the company is more like IBM than a startup.
