Sr. Network Engineer in Oakland:
"Captive To A Vendor."
Vendors like Cisco love to see devotees sacrifice dollars and time to their business because people who are locked in to the way Cisco does things will only add incentive for companies to buy Cisco products. Advice to network engineers, don't get locked into the way a single company does things. I witnessed the demise of Novell, and all its "contagions," people who bet their careers on Novell. In one year, 1994, with the advent of TCP/IP, it was all gone. This scenario is replayed over and over again in the data systems industry, DEC, Sun Microsystems, and now Microsoft. If you're going to learn networking, learn it all e.g. Firewalls, Cisco IOS, NX-OS, Juniper/Netscreen ScreenOS, Juniper JunOS, and Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS.
