Happy with job, but management approach change threatened job security
Full Time, Database Management Specialist II (Current Employee), Research Triangle Park, NCJuly 2, 2015
Pros: Flexible with telecommuting
Cons: low feeling of job security
My team's approach to training was to have senior peers do all of the training/mentoring of new employee's. Not only did the employee designated to train me support me fully, but so did every other team member that I reached out to. It truly felt like a team culture where everyone wanted each other to succeed.

Other teams within the company did not appear to have as unified a teamworking approach.

Once you are employed at Cisco, movement within the company becomes much easier and management is much happier to see you change to another role within the company than to leave to the company.

Short-Term but fun work environment
Data Center Technician (Former Employee), San Jose, CAJune 25, 2015
Pros: Free lunches and breakfast.
Cons: Hot environment, searching for missing parts.
I was contracted out to help in the Cisco data center, where I began by clearing room in the housing (blade frames) to move the servers to. This involved manual labor and very tight spaces, because it was a data center it was very hot from all of the running machines. I learned how to disassemble and reassemble blade frames in a data center and all of their wirings. I worked with one other employee. The hardest part of the job was making sure your counted the space on the frames properly so all of the machinery you are moving fits in its new home.

Cisco is trying to find its bearings - again
Global Solutions Lead, IoT and Cloud (Former Employee), San Jose, CAJune 16, 2015
Pros: Work Life balance
Cons: Lack of management focus/attention span
Overall Cisco is a great company. Considering it was built with acquisitions, there are fantastic and talented people onboard.The biggest challenge at Cisco is the lack of management attention span. If the corporate focus is defined and sustained - it will emerge as an even more successful company.

Great place to work!!
Network Engineer (Current Employee), Morrisville, NCJune 5, 2015
I love working at Cisco. A typical day can really be anything with the team that I am on although the constants are we get in and get in our phone que followup any trouble tickets from the day before and work any that get assigned to us. I've learned a lot working here even in a short time every person has their own view on things and is always willing to sit down and talk about the inner working of devices or networks too you. I love the management and co workers. They are all very lively and friendly people we often even get free food from the management on holidays or meetings or anything such. The hardest part of the job I would say is there is none, as long as you are motivated and fight like you love the job you will move up and never have to worry about having to leave this company. The most enjoyable part of this job I would say is the interaction with coworkers. If you want to learn new things and be involved in some bigger things then what your in all you have to do is ask, its just that easy.
