Great place to work at
Sr. Project Manager (contractor) (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 February 2013
Cisco Canada is really a great place to work at. I've been working there for almost 1 1/2 years as a contractor in AS SP team managing the deployment of 3G SGSN/ 4G LTE network for two major Canadian wireless operators. The atmosphere in the office is very friendly. Most of the co-workers I've dealt with are very open-minded and are easy to deal with. I really enjoy working with them. I wish I could be able to work there for many years... but, unfortunately, all projects have their beginnings and their ends.

My typical day at work would be coming in taking phones off voice mail, turn on computer, may fresh coffee, unload and load dishwasher, make sure all conference rooms are clean.

Answer phone when calls come in. Organized in bound mail and make sure it gets to the right person. Ship all out bound mail also.
