I've never understood why Cisco has moved so many employees (management & non-management) from India to the US. What is the motivation to do so ? Is it cost savings ? How ? or are these exceptional managers & engineers that had to be retained ?

Friends - the Cisco Contagion is spreading around the SPVSS world. The destruction of a thriving 5 billion dollar business is continuing. Whilst the so called ELT has jet-setted and spent lavishly with their massive bonuses, some in excess of 100% of... read more
Project Harmony (aka InterCloud Part 3 or is it 4?), pivoting again. Customers don't want it, but the SVPs have convinced ELT that Enterprises do. All the employees that were acquired are "resting and vesting" or have left for greener pastures. It's... read more
