Senior Program Manager (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

ProsVery large company
There can be lots of opportunity
They have a ton of cash

ConsVery large company, very hard to get things done now
There is basically no travel allowed unless it's for customer business

Advice to Senior ManagementBring back the "old" Cisco. Have the annual sales conferences again. Ignite the spark that made Cisco great.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
