Let the World Know What Happening.

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

Cisco Reflections

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

State of U.K. Theatre

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?

L/R Underway

Failure after failure

Cisco seems to be a sinking ship. Nothing the ELT does seems to make things better. In the mid-to-late 2000's, the (then) Global Government Solutions Group produced a customized version of standard Cisco gear that included US non-export encryption... read more

Heard from a reliable management source that there will be more layoffs in the UK after the Q2 results are announced. Apparently Enterprise have had a shocking H1 and people above are viewing this as an indicator the rest of the uk will follow in the... read more

New Cloud Strategy?

If this is Cisco's Cloud strategy to combat Amazon/Google/Azure, I think it's time to call your broker and sell.

How Congress might crack down on H-1B abuse

Under his legislation, any company paying H-1B workers less than $100,000 would have to show they couldn't hire Americans for the same jobs. Existing law has a similar requirement but sets the threshold at $60,000, a level established in 1998, and... read more

Cisco is the No.1 IT company in the world.

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

Thank you Cisco for LRing me in Sept
