Program Manager, Cross Functional (Current Employee) – London, ON – 10 April 2017
Cisco has advanced ways of working. Remote workers from around the globe collaborate to make projects successful. They bring together innovative teams without the barriers of geographic location. They don't have formal year end review processes or departmental rankings where there are quotas for each performance grade. Regular touch points with your manager are the norm and coaching is continuous. Great place to work.
great people, great flexibility
cons are associated with the project you are assigned to, i.e., some customers are better to work with than others.
Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 8 January 2017
People at Cisco are great, willing to help and share. I learned that you are sole responsible for your career progression with your track record and successes, but also with who and how you share. My management was encouraging and incentivized to take risks but never lose alone
Inside Sales Account Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 8 January 2017
At Cisco, we used to have a culture of sharing, discussing, considering and executing. My 10 year experience in the Company forged my character as a Tech Sales Professional. There's no typical day at Cisco, which made it very enticing for me because I planned my days and weeks as my customers or my teams would progress in their projects.
Great Worklife Balance and Chance and work on Interesting Projects
Senior Project Manager - Video Solutions (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 7 November 2016
Had a great experience working at Cisco. While there, one has the opportunity to work on very interesting projects, meet smart people and with generous working from home policies- a great work/life balance.
Working from Home.
It's a large company so at times you will feel like a small fish in a big sea.
Consulting Business Analyst (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 1 November 2016
Great company, amazing culture, great work life balance, offices are very inviting and built to foster creativity. Great mix of young adults and veterans who are always lending a helping hand. Most enjoyable part of the job is actually having so many people to work with.
Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) – Indian, ON – 4 September 2016
Its a great place to work as the company follows Agile working methodology and the higher management has positive working attitude. Being with the company for 6 years, I have gained leadership qualities and learned how to motivate the team to keep the project going in good spirits and to ensure timely deliveries. Co-workers make the place very fun loving. Every quaterly the company arranges for the team building activities at an outdoor location which allows the employees to take a break from work and get rejuvenated.
nothing good here (except for above average pay). toxic envirionemt, no innovation, nepotism in engineering, internal BU competitions which confuse customers, horrible C-suite level, no strategy, a lot of managers that do nothing and worst of all annual massive layoffs.
Virtual Sales Account Manager (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 21 April 2016
Working for Cisco has been a phenomenal experience. They invested more in developing me in the first 4 months I was there than any other company has in my entire tenure. Management helps guide you in becoming a successful account manager but you need to take the proactive approach and schedule time with your management team for guidance as they have far too much on their plate. Because of the high pressure and high demands that Cisco puts on their teams there is a lot of turnover overall in the company.
great package, great people, phenomenal benefits, fantastic visability
