Positive work environment with great opportunity to learn
Tier 1 TelePresence Support Engineer (Current Employee), Austin, TXJanuary 19, 2015
A typical day at work includes taking calls from the call queue. I have learned much about Voice/Video and the infrastructure required to support video teleconferencing for SMBs all the way up to large corporations. Management is great and always working to improve the work environment as well as expand the business. Co-workers are generally helpful and willing to teach if the opportunity arises. The hardest part of the job is when call queue is overloaded with calls and you do not have much time to work. The most enjoyable part of the job is a relaxed work environment.

Great work life balance
Software Engineer (Former Employee), Bangalore, IndiaJanuary 19, 2015
It is the best place for anyone to work. Great work life balance can be achieved. Best results in work along with a lot of fun can be seen here. The best thing about Cisco for women is the work from home option and the employees taking work from home are not left out from important discussions. So overall, it is a great place to be working in.

Fantastic company in which to Work, Live, Learn, and Play
National Partner Manager (Former Employee), Southfield, MIJanuary 15, 2015

Cons: big company where politics can be a challange
Cisco is an extremely fast passed, dynamic, and challenging place to work and I would not trade away any of the experiences I had while there. Change, at an ever increasing pace, is simply a mainstay of the culture at Cisco. It is very common to hear the phrase “The only thing constant at Cisco is change.” Successful Cisco employees embrace this part of the culture and thrive on learning new things and leading the global IT industry on a great number of fronts. The people I worked with at Cisco are very talented, intelligent, focused, warm, honest, and extremely supportive. Many of them will remain lifelong associates and friends.

The hardest part of working at Cisco was staying connected to all of the fascinating technology and business impacting advancements that were (and still are) being developed, all over the globe, at an ever increasing pace. On the other hand, the most enjoyable part of working at Cisco was being able to leverage those advancements to make a positive impact on the business of the partners and customer with which I worked. Many companies, and individual business leaders, expect Cisco to be the global leader in IT and they have grown to trust that Cisco will deliver the right solutions to meet their pressing business needs. As an employee, it was rewarding to represent that level of achievement by Cisco. Each day I remained invigorated as I worked to earn and grow that elevated level of trust with my partners and customers.

Working at Cisco was a fantastic and rewarding experience that has certainly made a big impact on who I am, the skills I have developed, and what I can offer others. I am truly grateful for the experience.

Ops (Former Employee), Reston, VAJanuary 9, 2015
It's a great company if you like large corporations. If not, then you will dread feeling like a number. Very hard to get fired, there are a lot of people who landed a job there and do the bare minimum because of that and the fact that if you excel it will most likely go unnoticed with the exception of an eventual advancement/pay raise. It is what you would expect out of a 70k employee organization.
