    Pros

    Great people to work with, outstanding management team, compensation and benefits were also great.

    Cons

    Unfortunately my team was made redundant due to a customer not renewing, was given a generous payout. Only criticism is that there was little done to get a new role within Cisco.

    Advice to Management

    When good staff are let go through no fault of their own, extra effort should be made to retain those staff.
