    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Mostly driven by marketing agenda. Engineers are 2nd class citizens. Salaries are rock bottom compared to the industry.

    Strike a deal with Obama and get some cash back into the US so engineers can get decent salaries. Most of the talent is moving to other companies.
