Great Place to Work
Software Engineer (Former Employee), San Jose, CAMarch 21, 2015
One of the best things about working for Cisco is the amount of documentation and the ability to search, and find, information quickly. With the internal lab discount on Cisco products, my lab always had the necessary equipment to support testing. If I ever needed a tool for my work, I asked and it came.

Managing the Healthcare Projects donated to the government of Jordan by Cisco Systems, CSR Department, gave me the capability, knowledge and experience to Manage very sophisticated large scale projects dealing with variety of stockholders from different cultures and Expertise. Filling the gaps between the expert stockholders (needs, requirements, goals and expectations) and the governmental institutions by building a successful communication model to insure providing and implementing Successful - Sustainable projects in guidance of a solid Project planning and execution, was the main Pillar for the achievements I’ve done so far in Cisco by reaching the stockholders satisfaction.

Cisco systems might have been a good company to work for in the past.
Support Engineer (Former Employee), Research Triangle Park, NCMarch 13, 2015
Even though I study their classes, which are very hard, I would never go back to networking. They work you till death and the other employees are not trying to lose their job, so is a very caddy environment. People get hired and fired depending on who you know, that is just the sad truth.

Good place to work in terms of people and culture but compensation and growth is not as expected.
