LRs in newly acquired BUs?

What’s the point if we are all leaving on our own. 4 months with Cisco is all I could stomach. I can’t believe the majority here are scared sh–less of being dumped by this dinosaur of a company.

Please Explain Salary Problems?

I was wondering if people can explain salary problems within Cisco to me. I don't see it. I'm in my mid 20s. Graduated college, spent a year at Google where I got a patent, then switched to FB for two years. Left after two years due to the bad rap... —  read more

Don't Worry About August; Do This:

Cisco is not a bad company now, nor then, in the hayday. The best thing the common everyday person can do, who is attempting to stick with it for the long haul: A. Max your 401k, stick to index funds. B. Max your ESPP. C. When your ESPP vests, (fully... —  read more

Few feels safe at Cisco

Just found this, sorry if it was posted before. We are among top ten companies where employees most fear being laid off - which shouldn't be a surprise to anybody. I'm just shocked that we only landed at seventh place, and not higher... —  read more

Do you need two useless doc managers for CJBU?

Two female managers who make jail wardens look like gods. Doc manager is the most redundant post and any sane person knows that. A monkey can do this job and a lot better than these two put together!

Being laid off is not about your age

It has nothing to do with age. After 10+ years at Cisco you are G11 or 12 and too expensive. I was a 35 year old G12 and was let go a couple years ago. Ended up with huge payout due to circumstances and was able to reinvent myself. Now I work for a... —  read more

Why do people hate Cisco?

I'm 27. Cisco hired me out of college. I'm a grade 10. Make over 125k a year. Friends are jealous. Cisco has been nothing but a great time for me. Work hard you get rewarded. I've had white and Indian managers. Both are cool.

Thank you Cisco for Laying Me Off

Although it didn't seem like it when I and every other 50+ white guy in our building was walking out the door, getting laid off from Cisco was one of the better things that ever happened to me. It was especially galling that Chambers was throwing a... —  read more
