Current Employee - Program Manager in San Jose, CA

I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time

Pros

- Open door policy (accessibility) of senior management
- Encourage rotation - managers very supportive
- Opportunity to do variety of things and develop breadth of knowledge
- Smart and congenial people to work with - snobbish attitude is a no-no
- Managers do not micro-manage
- Flexibility to work remotely from home
- Good benefits

Cons

- Promotion process sometimes seems like popularity contest
- Frequent restructurings of late affecting employee morale
- Being a big company, sometimes 2-3 teams are working on similar project without knowledge

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Employees should not be let go due to executive management blunders
- Ensure that top rated employees are moved to other groups instead of them getting impacted as well during group dissolution/reorg
