    Pros

    Knowledge sharing is key. Everyone is open to help out. It is great in this industry to have access to the origin of new technologies and get your hands on anything you need.

    Cons

    As the company grows, cisco culture is being lost. I am happy here though, the grass isn't always greener on the other side.

    Advice to Management

    No more "pilots" that get turned into full-blown projects without input or at least a report on how the pilot went.

    Communication of the "why" when changes are made would be very helpful and help employees get behind your new program. Also, we want to know this isn't just a project you are starting to get your name out and a check-mark on your performance review. Don't start a project that can't sustain itself when you leave.
