"Cisco Systems is a great company. But like every company there are going to be ups and down, good days and bad days. The IT field has grown tremendously over the last 25 years. And it will continue to grow, much more than we'll be able to keep up with the change. Even though there have been a few cutbacks. Cisco gets my A1 rating on quality."
