    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Boxborough, Massachusetts

    Grateful for HMO coverage in a few states. Benefits have improved over time and are progressive around family planning.

    Benefits are great. Pay is good but not always as competitive in the Silicon Valley market.

    The benefits package is very good for families

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Program Manager in San Jose, California

    Pretty good benefits. It's on par with some of the other major companies like Facebook Google and Salesforce. 401k is 4.5% vested immediately. ESPP is 10% of your salary with a 15% discount. You have multiple healthcare plans including kaiser, Stanford, United Healthcare and Cigna. On site Gym, doctors office, dental office. Some departments have some basic snacks. The cafe's are all over, but they are pricey and have average food. Which they were free or discounted. Feels like Cisco is trying to make money off of the cafeteria. Free VTA clipper card. Up to 10,000 in tuition reimbursement a year. Could get your full tuition reimbursed for a masters or MBA if you get VP approval. Plenty of training classes to take through the internal portal. Rarely any stock options. Pretty good paternity and maternity leave. Paternity is 6 to 13 weeks depending if you are the main care giver. Maternity is 13 weeks fully paid with the option for additional time off unpaid.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in New York, New York State

    The overall benefits package is good, but not great. The high deductible (best plan for us) has us paying for doctors, prescriptions and such through mid year. Then the benefits kick in. They increased the employer contribution to our HSA this year.

    Good benefits and a good place to be. I like the benefits. Good benefits and a good place to be. I like the benefits.

    As a contract employee, the only benefit was the flexibility to work from a home office.
