Topics regarding layoffs at Cisco Systems Inc.
So we continue to WFH until 2021. How do people feel about that? I believe the policy applies to US, Brazil, Mexico and another pandemic hot spot I cannot remember.
Next week 8000 or more from what i was told will be quietly LRd. NDA will help min the press coverg
Does anyone know when the next layoffs are going to hit? Is there an offer of early retirement? When should I expect a 15 minute call on my calendar? Is Cisco laying off in small? I don't think it's a big revenue generator but not sure.
Anyone else noticed that Cisco has gone off the rails lately with useless reports. I'm in Sales, and its gotten to such an extreme level that is about all we do now is fill out spreadsheets, PPT decks, plans, etc. Only to be stored on a file share... — read more
Learned my role is going away. I suppose I could complain and say ‘invest in your employees’ instead of outside causes. Wouldn’t change the result anyway.
Anyone know the story behind this? https://www.bizjournals.com/sanjose/news/2020/07/30/cisco-wrongful-death-lawsuit.amp.html
Just let the comments stay out here and let the audience decide what is good or bad. Why do we need the admins to shield us from bad or offensives posts......? I several posts deleted over last week.
I’m ready for a 25% paycut.. as we know many engineers are paid high. It’s ok to take paycut rather than job cut?

Third year in a row! Change leadership or LR more journeymen (and women)?

A hones question: How happy do you think Cisco's customers are?
Any word on early retirement?
Hi folks , I got a verbal confirmation on May 15 2020, as software engineer grade 8, in hyper flex team. Later that week recruiter says the position went on hold as they need ops director approval. He says after a month FY Budget will be out in July... — read more

I cant share the site. It is a significant overture of a divestment strategy that likely indicates a significant people reduction here.
I am over 50 and was LR'd going on three years ago... Biggest mistake I saw while at Cisco for 18 years was people living WAY beyond their means... Do you need a BMW? Even a new car? An upscale home? Spend your energy working, staying... — read more

A legitimate apolitical post about layoffs was deleted by the wokeness-police because someone’s feelings were hurt. How sad and pathetic.
People who were affected late February got their employment period extended twice already, till end of July. Are they getting another extension?

This site keeps deleting posts asking if certain words are taboo You cant even put the words in a post B—-listing for example is now a banded word on this site.
