      like anywhere else, relationship with manager is king. BFF with your manager and have them push your case. Unless your manager is waiting for gc, then go higher up.

      Being in Cisco how can one get an uncommon job title?

      Software engineer is the most common role in Cisco. Some try to get promoted to technical leader or principal engineer. Or move into different roles like product manager, UX designer, manager, sales engineer, etc.

    Cisco filed my PERM in 2014 after 3 years of continues layoffs/reorgs starting 2011... Cisco execs and HR knows the importance of filling PERM to retain talent... No guarantees but I guess Cisco will stop all reorgs for a year and open up window to file everyone's PERM together..

    I have heard there is a little room when they can file and managers should know it and act quickly

      Looks like changing title just for this is against the protocol.
