I know for a fact there is a directive from the highest levels to lower the average age of Cisco and so does anyone effected by it. The trade press will never write anything to publicise this as they could be sued and secondly they rely on... read more
I was laid off in Sep 2016. There was on reason given. I was told that is was not a performance issue. I was told, by my manager, that he was handed a note (from his manager) that essentially had my name on it and he was told to read the specific... read more
Today's news has left me and at others in shock. To promote this type of person to arch leader is just bad logic. Not surprised business is so bad. Anyone got inside track?

Contractors in the collaboration group have been put on furlough for rest of the quarter. I am not sure if this is across the company. I wonder if more layoffs are coming next quarter.

I've been on here quietly reading the posts and I have to say there is a lot of negativity. I suspect most of it is from people who got LR'd and are bummed to be out of the easiest place to make money I can think of. Cisco is without doubt the best... read more
