It is difficult to move forward in IT networking and avoid Cisco at the same time. I'd take the class.

This.

You're not involving yourself with nefarious activities, you're just taking steps to better your future. Take the class.

I know what it's like to feel compromised in your job. One day we'll meet for a beer and I'll tell you some of the financial services companies I've had to deal with. You're buying, though.

Take them then. But if you haven't been involved in IT before you might find the Cisco courses ... challenging. Cisco's certifications are some of the most difficult to obtain.

Oh and about your moral dilemma, do you use google or gmail? Do you use facebook or other social media? Everyone of them are doing things which are sketchy.

Apparently there is also a firewall backdoor that was developed by the NSA, and CISCO's Chief Security Officer naturally denies CISCO was in any way involved with it. So, my problem is whether to stay away from them or just to try to make the best of what it is. I am interested in IT work, but this situation is fairly off-putting.


Just remember,

With great IT powers comes great IT responsibility. Yes
