    I worked at Cisco Systems full-time

    Pros

    Innovative. Can do attitude. Good products

    Cons

    Lost it's way. Lack of respect for older/long term employees. New management very ruthless.

    Advice to Management

    Don't discard the experienced work force that made this company great. You get what you pay for - lower younger less experienced work force will deliver exactly that. Stop worrying about constant cost cutting and bring back the excellence and innovation. The competition is catching up fast and new management is stuck in it's old ways. Time to change the leadership team

    Cons

    - Strange location for an IT company, in the middle of an industrial park, outside of town. Not a very pleasant place to go for a walk with trucks and forklifts roaming around. Oranmore village is at least 20 min walk away, which is a bit far if one wants to go out for lunch. That's also where the bus stop is, so it's something to consider if using public transport to get to work. - Canteen is very bad. The catering...
