    Senior Product Manager

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsEnd user focus, passionate, high energy

    ConsIn fighting, slow decision making, wrong people in many positions, growing pains

    Advice to Senior ManagementCisco WebEx does not come to mind for top talent in mobile, software and cloud. This is not good. The top management is being imported from Symantec of all places, which demonstrates that top talent in mobile, software and cloud don't seek Cisco. Without top talent, the large Cisco bank account is meaningless

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Job didn't turn out what the interview promised.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIt was a clean and open environment, following Cisco's policy for an employee friendly company. I appreciated an independence to manage my projects and the pay was excellent going through a recruiting agency.

    ConsMany within management are absorbed with politics and arrogance, this was a drain in time and resources.
    Promised in my hiring interview was a strategic role as a program manager leading large teams and working within an Agile environment. In reality I was the sole project manager leading tiny projects in a waterfall life cycle. The products my teams were supporting had thousands of users/paying customers, however were of low interest for management in terms of acquiring a budget or 3, 4 resources to complete the project.
    I'd found my director a bit of a nag and micro-manager which unnecessarily raised my frustration level and caused confusion with others involved in the projects.
    The job was far below my skill-set and expectations. I was surprised how very different WebEx was from the rest of Cisco, a disappointment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeeds to rethink; train upper management in one methodology (if you say you want Agile) and agree on consistent standards. Have clarity and a comprehensive program portfolio fully committed and funded to before initiation.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great product and great people

    Senior Product Manager (Former Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    ProsVery interesting product to work on and a lot of challenges.
    If you're willing to stick your nose where you shouldn't, people will be more than happy to give you more responsibility.

    ConsThings happen very very slowly like any other large company.
    Most of the Eng team is in China which results in a lot of emails and sometimes late night meetings.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake things move faster. It doesn't make sense that customers need to wait months for new features.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Un compassionate environment

    Software Engineer (Former Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    ProsThere are no Plus points with this company

    ConsVery Unfriendly work environment. If Manager is happy, then your job and salary is cool, else, it sucks. Managers work on Bias basis , favorites get good projects to work. It has kiss - A** culture.

    Webex is supposed to encourage tele commute, but at the work place, they don't allow work from home. Well on paper it's allowed, but if you are not on good terms with your manager, it's not allowed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your team members, and not just protect the So-called leaders you appointed.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
