Pros

Good compensation and benefits for employees

Cons

Lack commitment to the employees performing well and wanting to stay with the company

Advice to Management

Stop outsourcing work to India and commit to saving US jobs. Its a joke to see John Chambers on TV saying he's helping create US jobs then he lays off 4,000 employees. Acquiring companies and letting go good performing long time employees shows a lack of commitment to the "Cisco family" that John preaches.
