    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Cisco Systems as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was lucky enough to be put with an outstanding team of intelligent, friendly, and personable people with an exceptional manager. As an intern, they made me feel like a part of the software engineering team.

    Cons

    During my internship, an entire division was laid off. That really affected morale and may ultimately be the reason that I decided not to accept my full-time offer.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I'm sad to say that the number of pros is shrinking every year

    Pay is generally good

    Cons

    Layoffs are becoming commonplace and morale is sinking!

    Competition is growing in many areas - routing, switching, security, collaboration

    Very few opportunities to advance

    Advice to Management

    Cut some of the fat at the top and stop cutting individual contributors. It's getting harder and harder for teams to get their jobs done.
