    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Cisco Systems as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Competitive salary if you are really ahead of the bunch (understandably, there is no incentive to become better at what you do)

    Cons

    Consolidate power system and inability to learn new methodologies. Priority to power struggles rather than the product.

    Advice to Management

    To the CEO of the company: change if you want to move forward.
