Approves of CEO

I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Tuition support
Work life balance
Fair salary
Promotional opportunities (long run, not short)

Cons

Limited potential and promotional opportunities in short term (e.g. Not sure why if you get promoted its almost guaranteed a year "time off" of the promotional treadmill to make space for others).
Salary growth
Stock price
Bureaucracy and levels of management

Advice to Management

I am an engineer - please make communication of my directives and priorities very clear and concise. I know what is expected from me by my manager and their manager about him. But I get lost in the multitude of corporate communications which see to hit my inbox every week, seemingly from different levels on different directives.
