Cisco is in the M&A business full time it seems

How many are still satisfied with their jobs at Cisco?

I'm talking about everything: pay, benefits, job security... I'm guessing a lot of people are here because of the lack of the third one, but the first two points are what's still keeping me here. What about the rest of you?

Who is next on the chopping block?

Who could be hit next? What locations? What departments? Are certain employees in more danger than other? In any case , it’s hard to think they’ll stop at this point.
