Buying the SRX product line

Cisco is in talks with Juniper to buy the SRX product line. Sometimes enemies work together especially if it benefits both. Cisco, it is believed, will then kill the SRX and push existing customers to migrate to Cisco's existing security products... read more

Confirmed there will be a massive mid-February layoff descending upon the company. Profits are not there and labor cuts is the only answer. Strap on the belts because it will be a big one.

January/February UK layoffs

There are rumours there's going to be more in January and February. Expect a consolidation of RSM's as they look to remove management overhead. This is the new Cisco. Haven't heard anything about more layoffs in the UK that soon. Anybody knows if... read more

UK Layoffs

Quite a few people got the axe in the UK last week from various parts of the business. Not sure on final numbers but I know 4 individuals personally. No announcement and a month before Christmas. Classy.

Keep posting

I am shocked at how many VPs read this site. I think it has more reach than people realize. Also, Cisco legal seems obsessed with finding out who is posting. All good signs.

This is why Cisco continue to fail

Great Again

To all you looser haters, Cisco is on the way back. Time to go back to your dung piles and stop spreading rumors that are fake. There are no LRs happening right now.

It's working

LR will continue. Profit is up and stock jumps. This means the strategy of cutting costs is working. In the foreseeable future, revenue, employee morale, and product quality will continue to go down. We will see more layoffs and higher bonus for... read more


Total revenue fell to $12.14 billion from $12.35 billion.... profitability is up 3.1%. So LRing a bunch of people resulted in cost savings, but still revenue drops... Maybe the execs should forgo their huge bonuses this year. Get ready for next... read more

Cisco's doing monthly LR now?

Is this how we should interpret recent events? Or, should I say it's a weekly thing? Such a great way to utterly f--- up the morale.

Today (Nov. 15th) is THE day of reckoning
