    Awesome People

    Software Engineer (Former Employee) Bangalore (India)

    ProsDuring my time at Cisco I worked with several people across different projects and teams. What I found(astoundingly) common them were that the people were so open and always ready to help (whatever it takes to get work done). It is always great to work at a place where work is not technically "work".
    Also internal movement is highly encouraged and very common. If you get tired of what you are doing or want to learn something new, there are plenty of new things to try out.

    In summary, very talented people, great work-life balance and a lot of fun to work here!

    ConsAs is commonly known, the remuneration is not great (when compared to companies of similar reputation).

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
