    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Cisco is a world-class organization with extraordinary people and opportunities. There is no shortage of challenge and opportunities can follow demonstrated performance -- particularly if located in San Jose, CA

    Cons

    Despite its global foot-print, Cisco remains a San Jose centric company from a leadership standpoint and --despite best-in-class collaboration technologies in its product portfolio -- opportunity standpoint. The company is trying to re-establish geographic proximity of colleagues to align with MIT viewpoint on Agile PLM framework. This is beyond silly on a campus where over 40 buildings and back-to-back meetings have employees calling in and WEBEX'ing into meetings where folks are in the same area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1.) get over co-location. It cannot scale.
    2.) stop chasing HP to the bottom. Cisco will irreparably break if Mgmt tried to get to HP numbers. Focus needs to change to being best metrics per segment space and lose focus on overall GM.
    3.) announce a meaningful retirement plan for Chambers and Pond and stick to them.

    Sometimes there is a bit desorganization in terms of project leads.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
