"Cisco is one of the most successful companies in the world in networking. Good work, Amazing work life balance and great benefits are the top 3 things i say about Cisco. Cisco is the only company in the world which offers end to end solutions on network. Being so big, sometimes the decision making process is slow because of lots of components being involved. Other than that. it is a great company to work for."

"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."

Cisco Systems Employee

"I have worked for Cisco Systems for over 14 years. Great company from a financial perspective and the people are very strong technically. The company continues to be a strong player in the network. I have learned a lot about routing and data networking. The biggest disappointment is career growth as it relates to senior level opportunities, the company is growing but in a very limited fashion. Senior opportunities are limited and it does matter who you know, especially in remote locations."

"Cisco is a great company, and treats all its employees nicely. Cisco experience was pleasant and gave me the chance to expand and try new Frameworks. I learned much more than I predicted in the time period I was with them. The company is set up that it will give any employee the chance to learn and apply new technology. It has very good structure and the company is looking for the next new thing all the time."
