Great place to work with wonderful smart people
Operations Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Florida – November 30, 2017
I really enjoyed my tenure at Cisco. The culture is wonderful; the company has great values and social responsibility. The culture is collaborative and most of your peers are willing to assist. In many positions you can work remote. Everyday you learn something new, and you are constantly being challenge. During my time at Cisco (as a contractor and as a full time employee), I reported to 5 different managers: I was very fortunate and 4 of them were great. Obviously, your work experience is directly influenced by who your manager is. The company offers great benefits and even allows you to take paid time off to participate in community and charitable activities. Yes, you work long hours, but that have become the norm in most job places. However, Cisco work setting flexibility off-set the hours you have to work.
The biggest problem is the lack of job security: to adjust to the demands and market conditions and shifts, Cisco is having limited restructurings (layoff) more than once a year.
However, if the right opportunity would be offered to me, I would not hesitate a second to accept it
Great culture, great people, intellectually challenging roles
