"I've worked for Cisco since 2007. I've found it to be a company that changes technical direction and lay off people that are in technologies that no longer seem "Hot" at that time. The company employs 70K+ employees and lays off 8 to 10K one day and hires 11K the very next. Employees are at the mercy of their relationships with mgmt. If mgmt does not like you, don't expect a raise, bonus or promotion. In fact if mgmt doesn't like you, you better update your resume and start looking for a new place because you will be laid off. A layoff at Cisco is their way of getting rid of people mgmt does not get along with, even if its because you didn't agree with the way a situation was handled."
