Current Employee - Senior Program Manager in Feltham, England (UK)

Pros

Excellent salary, benefits and potential to exceed, both financially and personally. Chance to work with some of the brightest, most intelligent people I've ever come across in a 25+ year career. Opportunity, in my particular role, to travel the world and meet/see new people and cultures. Excellent employer in terms of corporate responsibility and "giving back".

Cons

Regrettably, some management are still getting hired into positions because of the old boys/girls network and not on their actual merits.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay close attention to the senior leadership team (director level) and really question what value they are adding and whether they are just figureheads doing nothing whilst the team below them are really the stars of the show. In my experience/opinion Cisco is still "top heavy", especially at a "theater" level.
