Very slow stock price growth

Advice to Management

The "council" format of management was not working very well, as it added a lot of confusion trickling down to the rank and file

    Pros

    Cisco Systems is a well-run company, with reasonable compensation, fair and productive reviews, and fairly good morale. Problems are fairly quickly addressed, and overall management is quite good.

    Cons

    The company is so large that it's easy to become type-cast into doing a single thing.

    Advice to Management

    See if you can drum up the excitement of 1999.
