    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -very strong brand name, market share gained for many years, most revenue just coming from loyal customers without too much sales effort
    -Still can stay stable and safe for many years

    Cons

    -No long term plan at all, everyone only care about "WEEKLY" forecast, nothing more.
    -No longer a cutting edge tech company, selling product like selling commodity goods, increasing revenue only by pushing customer to buy more
    -Very unfriendly culture, even hostile, don't expect any help from others
    -unreasonable target

    Advice to Management

    without competitive product no sales effort can multiple the revenue
    focus more on product rather than sales target forcast
