Topics regarding layoffs at Cisco Systems Inc.
I wish Cisco the best, and genuinely do miss working there; but the tide has shifted. I hope Cisco can figure out the right balance of revenue from licensing. The technology has finally shifted; migrate to virtual and host it in the cloud. If you... — read more
What did I miss?
That will whip the management team in shape. Our stock performance is embarrassing!!
I left a while ago, I was hoping things have improved since then but judging by the posts I quickly skimmed through here, that seems unlikely. Has anything gotten better or are things the same? Or even worse? I have no specific reason for asking... — read more
Is it me or Cisco has become a company full of bean counters? Our CFO has built a finance team that has too much influence on the strategic direction of the company. Simply put, you can’t cut your way to prosperity and growth. Innovation is key!!!!
Would there be a Mid year bonus this year in Q2?

How many of you wish they were laid off already?
Restructuring and reorganization in Intent Based Network Group IBNG (aka EN) has left their centralized UX Org exposed and lack of traction means it will be dissolved early in year.
can anyone explain as have been offered a role which looked ideal but what actually goes on seems to be hot air. insights, and help please.
Seems I survived the layoffs this year. But it is such a lose-lose situation. You lose if you are laid off. If you are not laid off, you still lose because of all the uncertainty and worry. Why do they put us through this? There has to be a better... — read more
Does anyone know if cisco is on a hiring freeze? I applied for several jobs and i thought i will get an offer but it looks like the job was closed for some reason.
I was LR'd at 18 year mark. I disagree that the company was a horrible place to work. It was a great place. It was also however like a warm blanket for a long nap. Do NOT get complacent. You may think you are super well positioned and a... — read more
Obviously it's legal as Cisco does it but how is a company allowed to force employees to use PTO?
Thoughts? Future? Cisco OpEx Reduction...
To warn those that remain. It was my turn to be sent packing after 14 years, that was a little more than two years ago now. The LR was very unexpected as I was singled out is a key leader in the team just a few weeks before. It hurt and it took... — read more
My perm application returned for the 3rd time - due to some recent layoffs - is anyone else experiencing this issue
On https://www.greatplacetowork.com, it says "98% Employees say this is a great place to work" for Cisco. Really??? I understand some people really have it made here, but that is SOME people, not 98%. I can guarantee you nobody I know here would... — read more
Why do so many people come to this site to complain about being laid off? You don't even work for Cisco anymore. Why not man up admit c-ap happens and move on with your next opportunity? If Cisco truly is a bad place to work it's ironic how many... — read more
While other companies have surged. JC, you messed up bad in your succession planning.
Is it possible to ask for a salary revision in Cisco based on an offer from a different company? How should those discussions be initiated with the manager ? what implications it might have?
All hands by WebEx scheduled Dec 3 for my engineering business unit. Suspect layoff news will be announced by VP then those laid off will get brief 1-on-1 meetings with their manager (or HR) very very soon afterwards. Clip, clip, clip. This is... — read more
I need your suggestions on my situation at Cisco. I am working as a software engineer in routing group for the past 14 years. I recently got promoted to Tech Lead II. I earn about $200K base, $50K bonus, $100 - $150 K stock each year. I am... — read more
I've been in the tech industry for over 20 years and these layoffs and restructures happened once to twice a year. Just when things where getting back together and people had some idea of what they were doing, another one would happen and create... — read more
a down day for Cisco. At this rate, the “do nothing” Cisco executives will have to continue to pretend to work for a few more years before their retirement.
Lots of talk about major layoffs soon. My question is this: if I get notified that I am laid off on (for example) Dec 3, 2019 with two months severance, is the payout made in 2019? Or is the payout made in 2020? The year the payout is made will... — read more
Has Cisco ever done a voluntary LR, early retirement or any other program like that in the past? If so, were the terms any different than the standard LR? Assuming with the wall street numbers that a more significant LR needs to occur was just... — read more
Anyone would care to chime in with a prediction about potential Cisco Layoffs 2020? Any news or rumors?
