"Cisco is a great company to work for and afforded me many opportunities to grow my career both internally and externally. Their training programs and the experience/level of individuals that work with you on a day to day basis is one of the main reasons I worked there for so long. I would highly recommend them as both a starting career and as a long term growth opportunity."

"A good place to work, if you don't mind annual layoffs (they call them LRs - Labor Reductions) They work can be extremely interesting, but they are having a tough time learning how to become a best in class enterprise software supplier. They will make it, but enterprise software is very different than embedded software."

"Cisco was very good to me. Excellent work and interesting projects with latitude to innovate and investigate new concepts and ideas. Workplace culture changed over the years from a start-up mindset to a more commodity-oriented company; however, the engineering workplace fostered a cohesive and thought-provoking environment."
