    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    There is a great working culture and belief in what we are doing is making a difference. People are generally pretty sharp but there are some folks in middle management that are very disappointing.

    Cons

    Some areas are still way understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    They really need to re-evaluate some of the middle managers.


  2. "Hard hat area!"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    IronPort retains a ridiculous number of of bright people, providing a largely idiot-free workplace populated with people who aren't interested in stepping on others' fingers as they climb the corporate ladder. It is, by far, the most collegial atmosphere I've ever worked in.

    Cons

    Engineering seems to reorganize randomly; it's better than it was only about half the time. Reorg decisions are made at the highest levels, and apparently don't take lower-level managers opinions into consideration.

    Additionally, the CEO has become more and more absorbed by Cisco; it's apparent he's losing touch with his roots. I suspect he's getting pressure to integrate more, but bringing the best Cisco management into IronPort is lowering the average IQ of both companies.

    Advice to Management

    You've hired some of the brightest people in the Bay Area; let folks do their jobs and stop shuffling their cubes around to suit this weeks' concept of order.

    Cisco would do well to leave IronPort on its own. It's still nimble, and doesn't need the extra baggage.
