Employees resent it when company principles appear to care more for the stockholders, many of whom certainly have no interest in the company except for one return on investment than for the welfare and standard of living for the employee. Employees will ask, why bust my buns for some person who inherited well and has never worked a day in his life or come in early to open up the business or stayed late to resolve a business challenge? Employees resent it when some person is appointed to the board and given a huge salary by most employee standards, who may have never worked and who has definitely every lost an ounce of sweat of second of time in the business. So, sure, there may be one sales person whose performance is off the charts; however, it makes no difference if the product is not in stock, or it is damaged in the warehouse, or the order was lost, or the billing was not correct, etc. The reality is that 4 mediocre employees can more than offset the performance of one exception employee.

This guy obviously has no idea what he is talking about. HP and Google offer far more than what was mentioned in this article. I see HP stealing more and more of Cisco's market share on the high end network equipment. Does this guy honestly believe that those tablets and phones are going to run magically without any network infrastructure?
