Great Place to Work

Engineer (Current Employee)
Raleigh, NC

I have been working at Cisco Systems as a contractor for more than a year

ProsFlexible Work environment (work remote/and onsite) , my Department managements are great. Judged on work performance, and no micro managing. My Team is a great group of people and very easy to work with. Many long term employees.

Not at all what I expected from such a large company. (much better than expected)

I would say that my time at Cisco so far has been the best employment experience in my entire career.

ConsContracting verses Employee. Wish to be converted to Employee.

Advice to Senior ManagementModel all Departments after CCAT Group. Consider converting more contractors who are preforming well to employee status.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
