Work depends on your BU but great WLB all round. Many opportunities to advance and company is very transparent and tries to get everyone involved as much as posible

Giant company in transition at a core level. Doing their best to change but bound to upset some while pleasing others.

Giant company in transition at a core level. Doing their best to change but bound to upset some while pleasing others. Adding benefits for retention for longer tenure. Promotion/job transfers into new areas are challenging. Need executive support for any traction.


Access to Silicon Valley pioneers - experts say in their roles.


Lower salary, top executives get the biggest bonuses/perks. Many managers do not compensate for exceptional work.

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.

Flexible Part Time Working is not a Miracle

Flexible working hours and work from at home- You decide how and where you work; what counts for Cisco are the results- Great investment in people (benefits, company car, ongoing trainings)- Ability to change jobs/roles within the company- Strong Global Player inI have two kids at home and can still pursue my job as a marketing manager. With the full flexibility and freedom of choice on when and from where (home/office) you want to work this is a very valuable benefit.

A good and secure place to be at

Its a great place to start your career, on onboarding process was very accommodating, peers are always ready to help. Sometimes things do get out of hand and PRDs are changed on the fly but that's a rarity. Products are good and leaders are open to suggestions.


Good tech stack and projects


Sometimes work can be unorganised and disruptive

Good place to work

Cisco is a good place to work but is undergoing a shift from traditional workplace to one that appeals to millenials and their priorities which can be a challenge.

Productive and fun workplace and flexibility for home office

Productive and fun workplace and flexibility for home office, business travels, employee benefits and excellent salary. As soon as you enjoy corporative work life.

People are good natured

Working in the HR side can be a little frustrating since it's pretty slow-paced. It's a good work life balance and great area for those who have families. The job culture is laid back and as long as you get your work done that's all that truly matters. I have made some good connections as people who work here, the ones I have encountered, like what they do.

Excelentes condiciones de Trabajo !!!

Me encanta trabajar en una empresa líder, en donde además los directivos desde el CEO hasta tus supervisores se toman el tiempo para explicar cuales son loa planes de la empresa a corto, mediano y largo plazo, lo que se requiere para cumplir esos objetivos, la capacitación necesaria, el cambio en los procesos y todo lo que cambiará para lograr dichos cambios desde el CEO hasta el menore rango de la empresa y siempre sabes lo que la empresa espera de tí...
