Great group of people to work with that work hard and are very supportive of each other
A typical work day is usually full & busy. It allows little down time but it is very rewarding since Cisco is always at the cutting edge of technology and there is always something new to learn. However, there may be a few slow days depending on the time of the year where the work environment is very festive and allows for some fun! The most enjoyable part is building new relationships with the great people that work at Cisco.
Management Consultant | Boxborough, MA | Mar 31, 2020
Intense work environmenet not always organized
A lot of management turnover. Things you worked on didn't always martialized in the end. People were nice but things could be hectic. Personally I would not go back there.
Senior Business Development Manager | St. Louis, MO | Mar 4, 2020
Good work life balance, Cisco loves to be part of the community. It was good to feel like your work made a difference. For my role I was able to be located anywhere as long as I had access to an airport.
Director of Business Development | San Jose, CA | Mar 16, 2020
Rigorous Environment
Rigorous Environment, work hard play hard. We are very active in the market and that keeps the environment rigorous. Much M&A and investments within the Corp Dev Group.

Never worked or Interviewed at Cisco
The algorithm brought up this survey. Please disregard this portion of my profile. I have worked with Cisco networking product for almost twenty five years.
Optimization Manager | San Jose, CA | Feb 18, 2020
Very hard to work at Cisco
People are insecure and hence there is lot of politics. There is dearth of workers and hence they make you work harder and pay very less. Do not recommend working at Cisco.
