    Pros

    Enjoy working on cross functional global teams - love the CVO 9Cisco Virtual Office) solution for telecommute. Great supportive colleagues.

    Cons

    Feels a bit too tight in the new collaborative office space. Not everyone is comfortable with telecommute. Probably right choices with lay-offs last year, but still tough on everyone who left and who stayed.


  2. "Very solid products and services in their industry and treats employees very well overall"

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule and place
    Strong compensation package
    Good opportunities to move around into different areas of company

    Cons

    'Over' collaboration leads to slow and painful decision making process
    Too many instances where employees that are 'bad' for the larger group are not dealt with appropriately

    Advice to Management

    Get a handle on too much collaboration and ensure right level of 'tops down' direction
    Manage out employees who are no longer a fit and/or are negatively impacting the larger team
