    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Cisco Systems as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Contracting pay is above average and contracts can go on for years. Once you've been employed at Cisco, chances of being able to always find work there is very good.

    Cons

    No overtime paid despite pressures to often work over 40 hrs/wk. Very "corporate" environment. Getting a full time job is not likely and there is a large gap between contractor wages and full time, even with benefits included.

    Advice to Management

    Often projects are taken on that really have no intrinsic value to the company or customer. Pay attention to the amount of money being wasted on just trying to look busy, rather than productive


  2. "Learned a lot, both technically and politically"

    Don't reorganize every 12 months
