    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of cash on hand, seems to be moving forward with new technologies, started to restructure around more core business and more focused global portfolio.

    Cons

    Complex company, lost the efficiency and agility of smaller players, a lot of politics, management chain disconnected from reality, still largely San Jose oriented despite good efforts to become a real global company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enough outsourcing. Inefficiency, lost of creativity and ownership.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
