Cisco is in talks with Juniper to buy the SRX product line. Sometimes enemies work together especially if it benefits both. Cisco, it is believed, will then kill the SRX and push existing customers to migrate to Cisco's existing security products... read more
How stable is this BU?
Anyone cares to predict?
Confirmed there will be a massive mid-February layoff descending upon the company. Profits are not there and labor cuts is the only answer. Strap on the belts because it will be a big one.
There are rumours there's going to be more in January and February. Expect a consolidation of RSM's as they look to remove management overhead. This is the new Cisco. Haven't heard anything about more layoffs in the UK that soon. Anybody knows if... read more
Quite a few people got the axe in the UK last week from various parts of the business. Not sure on final numbers but I know 4 individuals personally. No announcement and a month before Christmas. Classy.
I am shocked at how many VPs read this site. I think it has more reach than people realize. Also, Cisco legal seems obsessed with finding out who is posting. All good signs.

To all you looser haters, Cisco is on the way back. Time to go back to your dung piles and stop spreading rumors that are fake. There are no LRs happening right now.
LR will continue. Profit is up and stock jumps. This means the strategy of cutting costs is working. In the foreseeable future, revenue, employee morale, and product quality will continue to go down. We will see more layoffs and higher bonus for... read more
Total revenue fell to $12.14 billion from $12.35 billion.... profitability is up 3.1%. So LRing a bunch of people resulted in cost savings, but still revenue drops... Maybe the execs should forgo their huge bonuses this year. Get ready for next... read more
Is this how we should interpret recent events? Or, should I say it's a weekly thing? Such a great way to utterly f--- up the morale.
A massive LR will be announced during the earnings call conference at 1:30 PM PST. 7000 heads will be wacked and an additional 4000 might be chopped at the end of Q2. Business is not good and is not expected to improve. Do yourself a favor and... read more

Recently I got LR package and the very first paragraph mentioned that " My services are not required at Cisco". Now I got affected because the BU I worked had less market share. What it means that Cisco products are not required in market any more... read more
CPSG got hit today. Time for a collective sigh of relief, as we sort of knew it was coming, but the anxiety of waiting and wondering is over. Many people had new jobs lined up already. If you are visiting this board frequently, then you know about... read more
...listening to all your griping and complaining here. Our BU got the ax, but fortunately was sold off instead of thrown into the dumpster. I can already feel my IQ slowly increasing at our new acquisition home. Best thing that could've happened to... read more
