Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Cisco provides huge access of learning, gaining knowledge, research and also best working environment. The game zone, cafeteria, gym, singing, dancing, movie night 😍 It acts like a university not company.


Learning Environment


Most of the people work from home so in-person meeting happened very few.

No rush

Whatever you do at Cisco has a defined process. So the things are very streamlined here. There are times when you may have to wait longer than usual but I use that time to chill :P

Great work life balance

It all depends for which team or manager you are working for. Some teams will be micro managed while others won't be. Overall it provided a good work life balance.

Work Life Balance is very easy here

It has been great. I got to experience new technologies. I think that the Automation Test team is monotonous... You might get bored of the work after sometime... Apart from that the benefits and life at CISCO is wonderful. I would expect a higher salary though...
