    Its a very rich benefits package, with medical, dental, vision, 401k employer contribution, life and accident insurance.

    Best benefits in all the companies I have worked for. I truly have no negatives to say about Cisco benefits.

    There are many options, you'll need to select one that is most beneficial to your needs.
    This can be both good or bad, one need to perform the health incentive programs to earn points that can be used to cover the deductibles.

    Company is very flexible and has great benefits

    Current Software Engineer in San Jose, California

    In general the HRMS is very easy helpful and easy to reach-out to.
    Worst: For non US citizens, the immigration company hired by Cisco is Fragomen Del Ray .. They are very hard to reach out to and not extremely helpful. And immigration is the area that needs a lot of help.

    Best things are 401K and health benefit. Cisco employee gym is also nice in San Jose.

    It actually cause employee money to go to company gym. The gym is nice, but with limited hours, and nowhere as convenient as 24hr fitness. Also, no free lunch, no free snack, no free soda in breakroom.

    Former Employee in Pittsburg, California

    they have very good plans

    401k is matched up to 4.5% of your base salary. Gym on campus isnt free. Cisco isn't like Google or Facebook where you get free massages and that. It's still a tech company, but with a more corporate/traditional vibe

    Current Project Manager in San Jose, California

    I'm a contractor and don't receive Cisco benefits. The company I contract with offers minimum benefits and contributes nothing toward my health insurance costs.
