Current Employee - Program Manager in San Jose, CA

I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Stability, if you do your job there is not a reason to get laid off.

Cons

salary growth, I know many people that leave to come back a year later to get a higher salary.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

pay the people that have been there as much as you pay the new highers
