      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
