I would add that many CCIEs are engineers that have moved up to technical
management, project management, or other positions and have lost their
technical knowledge and skills because they no longer need them. I know
several people like that. Getting the CCIE the first time is really the
important part. Recertification is less important unless you work for a
Cisco partner.
