No job security for UK work force - high level of reduncies
Engineer (Current Employee), FelthamFebruary 14, 2014
Pros: nice offices
Cons: job security
The moral within the company is very low with significant uncertainty for the future of the UK work force. Management are not clear with their perceptions of the future and this result in a detached atmosphere. Trust is no longer there between the leadership team, managers and HR and the staff on the floor
This is not a good time to join Cisco if you – more... are looking for job security and a rewarding investment of your time. – less

Great exposure
Human Resources Central Intern - Internal Support (Former Employee), San Jose, CAFebruary 13, 2014
Pros: great team, positive atmosphere, great corporate experience, real project involvement
Cons: short term, initial technical issues
Typical work day involved answering phone calls within the call center and resolving issues revolving around payroll.

Management and mentoring was strong and help was always a click away, co-workers were very helpful and the greatest things I learned were:

- vocal control during phone calls
- dealing with stressed individuals while keeping my cool
- – more... learning to be resourceful and finding answers on my own
- learning to deal with limited information
- understanding that ambiguity is a default state in a problem solving role

Most difficult part of the job was learning all the details surrounding the payroll issues in a short period of time as it was an internship and the best part of the job was the team and people, they were very kind and always lending a helping hand even when they themselves were swamped with work.

Mentoring provided was awesome! – less
