Just hot off the press. Q2 guidance not looking good. Expect a headcount cut of up to 5% or more to make up for the revenue short fall. Confidential reliable rumors are predicting an even deeper cut, up to 12% will be shown the door.

Start Looking. Not worth waiting for LR package.

Waiting around for a potential LR package is ridiculous. Did you work this hard to finally get here, only to constantly think about when your LR cycle will come? Actively look. Spend an hour a day. Interview. Sharpen your skills. The market... —  read more

Call it vindication, call it irony. I take great joy with meeting with customers, working through architectural assessments; and helping customers move to other non-Cisco vendors and technologies. It is a big world out there with lots of... —  read more
