Topics regarding layoffs at Cisco Systems Inc.
Se that some restructures are rumored. What other parts of Cisco could be restructured in the near future?
The managers issuing layoffs aren't doing that of their own volition. There's (simply put) an xls spreadsheet with a bunch of employees. Somewhere they draw a line. If you're above the line, you get laid off, if you're below, you're fine (for now)... read more
Call will be held early next week to determine the fate of many engineers in the CX org. Multiple "overlapping" roles will be eliminated to meet the 286 million dollar "cost-saving commitment" Cisco promised in 2019.

now that bonus letters came out, when will the spring promo cycle be? since they skipped last fall, lots of folks are chomping at the bit and being told they are "next in line"
Can someone please explain why employees buy Cisco stock? It makes zero sense to me. Yeah it's $50 and you get it for a discount but who cares. I have purchases two stocks only over the past 5 years since I've been with Cisco - Facebook and Amazon. I... read more

For those lucky enough to get them anyone know when web letters will be sent out this quarter for raises and promotions?
It’d be something if enough employees in a group decided to quit Cisco for another job because the environment became too toxic. The managers who issue layoffs would probably get laid off if that happened.
as opposed to always being negative, let's start a thread on the upside of being a cisco employee (that performs well at least) in the coming months recently there was confirmation of mid year bonus... any guesses / rumors on company performance... read more
I’m beginning to see this ‘board’ dry up with any commentary as more get laid off from ciaco.

New to Cisco. I have heard that there are going to be company wide layoffs sometime soon. Anyone has an idea of what that date might be? Early march? Early April?
My take on layoff predictions: note it has come true everytime. TAC - majorly AS Cloud Mgmt/center UCS & teration Routing Surprising no switching group.
For those who were in Advanced Services, why did Bryan Palma leave for Blackberry? Looking at his LinkedIn, it appears he leaves a place every 5 years, which is typical of execs. I heard he was generally disliked, and uses companies only as a... read more

Yeah so asking on behalf of a friend, but my friend hasn't been looking so great lately and he won't talk about work at all. Are layoffs happening in Alpharetta too?
Does anyone know what the amount is and if it's a flat bonus or it depends on clearance level? I have a TS and a possible offer.
I was in a group (dealing with cloud computing - the area that Cisco management said they were concentrating on and therefore laying LR'ing people in other areas). Had been with Cisco 20+ years, age 50+ and I got laid off in September, 2016. Part of... read more
Q2 Financial results will be released on that day. At the end of the call, Chuck will mention that 4,500 people will laid off. If your mgr is acting strangely to you since mid Jan, that's a sign you're on the chopping list. . A few heads will be... read more
