Why can't Cisco just buy Amazon? Problem will be solved instantly.
Kanouff and Co. Teflon coated wreckers. How come they only ever get promoted?
What's the deal folks ? Time to flee ?
Sounds like another round of layoffs are coming our way for the month of August. Such is the rumor here in RTP, IT. This is getting old.
Can somebody explain to me how is this OK? While people are being laid off or forced to leave on their own practically on daily bases here, Cisco is adding more jobs in Ireland. It looks like everybody is prioritized over American employees. I'm... read more

It seems to be very difficult to find any information about this. If a person is to leave 1 month before the end of the fiscal year, does it mean that this person will loose the entire annual bonus (i.e. it will not be proportionally calculated?)... read more
Just wondering what the situation is at Cisco right now in regards to hiring older employees who were laid off in one of the previous layoffs rounds? Is it even provided as an option to them? Or are people simply blacklisted by the company once they... read more
