re: Cisco Buys Allegro The Cisco's model of acquisition of companies do not work. What Cisco did wqas adapted by Nortel Networks, Alcatel, Lucent Technologies and many other companies.

One of the big disadvantages of acquiring companies is getting stuck with unsuitable employees who can not work acroos projects, So a large workforce idles while the company is forced to hire other emolployees. This is what has happened at Cisco and many other companies. Cisco has a large workforce that simply idles and the productivity of the company keeps declining.

Cisco has also attempted to show that you do not need any experience and very little education to have a high level job. This structure of the rtecent management clearly exhibits this.

Any company does not have any principled approach to management and core values is very likely to perish.

Cosci has boght about 80 companies or so and wasted a lot of money without getting any long term benefit. The shareholders are the real victims of the excesses of Cisco and many other companies.

Many of the executives Cisco came from many small companies with no significant experience in managing technologies and businesses. That is why Cisco failed and there does not appear any chance of iits recovery.

The WallStrret Analysts cannot be trusted about their analysis of Cisco.

re: Cisco Buys Allegro Don't worry abouth Harvey Mudd, he doesn't like CSCO, and doesn't want to be confused by the facts. He'd rather try to sling mud, and paint the CSCOP name with the same brush as the NT and LU. Look at the financials, and see who doesn't know how to manage.
