Software Engineer

"I worked for Cisco for about a year, and it was a great experience. Lots of smart developers who are willing to help each other out. We had daily meetings to keep up with the work and work through challenges. The culture is really relaxed (in a good way) and work-life balance is well structured."

Cisco Systems Employee
in Richardson, TX

"I worked for Cisco 4 years in Engineering Central Services before being impacted by a workforce reduction. I came back as a contractor in the same capacity. I enjoy the people, work, and challenges at Cisco. As we transition in our product offerings, the company continues to have layoffs a few times a year. That impacts morale in a negative way. The company is using more contractors while the permanent workforce reduces. I will continue working here as the ability to work remotely from home is very appealing."

Developer
in San Jose, CA

"Have been here at Cisco for 8 years and get great reviews from my boss but ZERO raises (except for a promotion). Work-life balance stinks, Cisco forges bad reviews of older employees to get rid of them and there are regular layoffs despite great performance by the company. (A Cisco co-worker described the layoffs as a General executing many of his own soldiers after they've defeated a hated enemy)."
