Thread regarding Cisco Systems Inc. layoffs

Cisco Contractors

What most are not aware of, is CISCO has 70% of its workforce as contractors. The 35000 employees is touts is only FTE staff. In total, head counts is over 100k.

They keep billions overseas to avoid taxes and are building a cheap labor empire.

They state they cannot hire Full Time Employees due to recent Health Care costs. Hard to swallow when there is so much money sitting idle in Europe.

They will only hire college grads on Cisco IT, and if you have grey hair, I wouldn't bother thinking for 1 minute you'll ever have an FTE opportunity.

The corporate caste system in place is not conducive to quality deliverables in the contractor realms. Most contractors are not paid to industry standard and do not have decent health care options. Point being CISCO doesn't want to pay the vendors to In turn pay the staff appropriately.

So the business' continue to prevail while those doing the work are not on same playing field. They ask a lot, but you are segregated from many events. Lots of "fun days" as they are called for FTE's while the contractor force continues business as usual. In an epic morale crushing move, there was a fund raiser 5 k walk. Contractors actually had to pay more money to walk for the charity that the employees did to participate. They send email out for all these events with a big tag line "Full time employees only".

Nice that a communications company can't even send out proper targeted information to right audience.
