    Pros

    Very entrepreneurial, run your own business company. Plenty of resources to perform your job. You can make good money, too. Lots of different technologies to sell, so you're never completely out of an account. Great financial principles, which gives Cisco fantastic long term success.

    Cons

    It can take a long time to get promoted. Not a clear path to promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose sight of the culture that has made Cisco a great company. Continue to invest in your employees. Keep up the good work.
