Cisco Systems to Eliminate 10,000 Jobs

Cisco Systems intends to eliminate up to 10,000 jobs companywide, or about 14% of its workforce, including 7,000 jobs that would be cut by the end of August, in a bid to revive profit growth.

Cisco Systems, Inc., designs, manufactures, and sells Internet protocol (IP)-based networking and other products related to the communications and information technology (IT) industry and provide services associated with these products and their use.  The Company provides a line of products for transporting data, voice, and video within buildings. Its products are designed to transform how people connect, communicate, and collaborate.

Cisco is exiting less-profitable businesses as competitors take market share in Cisco’s main businesses with lower-priced, simpler products.  Sales of Cisco’s switches and routers, which made up more than half of revenue last year, will continue to slip, said Brian Marshall, an analyst at Gleacher & Co. 

Information is provided by the Plant Prospector. For more information on the product, follow this link

The Plant Prospector is a weekly e-mail service that identifies national, regional, and local plants and businesses in transition through layoffs, closings, and work force reductions. A reduction in the number of employees is an indication of a current or imminent change in the operations of an enterprise and is invaluable in identifying companies including private firms, small public companies, and subsidiaries of major corporations that are in flux. Plant Prospector is an ideal prospecting tool for firms that provide services to businesses in transition, such as temporary employment agencies and outplacement firms, and for companies whose business may be affected by change, such as suppliers, professional firms, and insurance companies.
