If it's purely naming convention you are looking for, then you could do the
svn co /company/product ./company
This will make the 'company' folder a working copy of the /company/product
folder. This does make it slightly less obvious as to where 'company' is
checked out from.
Unfortunately, because /program1 and /program2 are not direct children of
the /company directory, I don't think sparse checkouts are an option
(although I could be wrong).
