Current Employee - Senior Program Manager in San Jose, CA

I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Networking with People, Development opportunities, Good benefits, Flexible, encourage education & training

Cons

Bureaucratic & Highly political environment, lot of repetitive / competitive work in parallel groups, lack of consistent messaging on strategy, Focus on individual LOB rather than whats good for the company

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep IC's engaged. Reduce redundant jobs and encourage collaboration. Cisco is missing out on HUGE wins due to defensive mind sets and people not willing to collaborate due to sense of job security. Encourage knowledge sharing across divisions & functions.

    Cons

    need to know how to play to get promoted, hard-working will not make you stand out given 10 people work on a project which only need 3 workforces...
