Business Operations Manager in Herndon, VA

Great company. Cisco is dedicated to transormation and there have been victims along the way. Most are well taken care of. There is great respect for employees.

Great company to work at. Fully remote contract employee with a lot of flexibility on hours. Sometimes I feel lost amongst the crowd and not seen as it is a very large company and not sure management knows what I do. I am learning new skills all the time.

Good days. bad days - neither the best or the worst place to work. Too many daily meetings and too many processes make it difficult to get simple task done.
Sales Manager/General Manager in Rtp, NC
on September 30, 2022
Love being in a positive growth mindset culture but here you have to actively show you are MORE than positive ALL the time or you are considered and labeled as being negative. Heaven help you if you don't use smiley emojis in your IMs. It has gotten to the point of toxic positivity in the last year.
Software Engineer in Research Triangle Park, NC
on September 29, 2022
Incompetent management intentionally fosters an environment of tattling and blaming, and lies on reviews when they want to cut costs without having to be accountable for layoffs

Interview Questions

It was basically an engineering sweatshop.

Shared on March 25, 2021

No mention of free overtime work was ever mentioned during the interview. You learn about the free overtime after you move to Atlanta and realize that an important item was never mentioned during the interview.

Shared on December 23, 2020

I had been asked on eye pattern waveform, signal jitter, BERT generator, and Network knowledge.
