    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Cisco is great with collaboration, although the right hand never knows what the left hand is doing in terms of BUs.

    Cons

    Work hours are long and working multiple timezones is mostly a must. Management changes frequently and direction can change multiple times.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on your own jobs and more on the actual projects and products. Management seems to make too many political decisions rather then technical, functional or best business sense.
