Goodbye, Cisco

This is my stop. Getting off here. Thanks for the ride.

In 2004, our relatively “small company” got acquired by its neighbor down the street, Cisco. Nearly a decade of working at a “big company” has led me to a decision to make a change. Years ago, I might have written a diatribe about all the things that were behind this decision. But today, I won’t. Cisco treated me well on the whole. Gave me a lot of flexibility. I just wasn’t content with the challenge anymore. That’s what I circled on my exit survey.

So just before our spring vacation trip, I gave my two weeks notice. And today is the end of that period. Last day of employment inside the mother ship. Spooky? Exciting? Seemed like just another day actually.
