Company with Great Values, but Difficult to Make it as a Contractor
Contract Technical Writer (Current Employee) – Morrisville, NC – April 9, 2017
I really support the culture of service and contribution to the community at Cisco. As a contractor there, I have sometimes felt frustrated with the lack of clarity about opportunities that exist for becoming full-time or for advancement. I am still making the same salary as I did a year ago, after a year of hard work, and I'm having trouble paying my mortgage. Cisco does a lot for the community and asks a lot of their employees. It would be really nice if they also paid them better for their effort. Overall, I recommend the company for its people and culture, but would caution against getting an indefinite role as a contractor.
