Positive Outlook

I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time for more than 3 years

Cons

* There are still some teams with very slow pace and not eager to change. But the culture is changing positively

Advice to Management

* Culture is shifting in an amazing direction. Still some work to do. Thanks for starting to fix this. Much needed
