    Great Place to Work

    Pros

    My role typically requires me to be on site a couple days a week because it is customer facing. When Covid hit my team was so great at transitioning into the virtual world. Everyone is so understanding of each individuals situation and management encourages us to take care of ourselves and our family first. I love the check ins from the ELT that occur bi-weekly. They are super transparent and are not shy about talking about various topics ranging from Social Justice to Mental Health. If you are looking for a great place to work that cares about it's employees Cisco is for you.

    Cons

    None I can think of

    Pros

    Great pay, great benefits, lots of opportunities for career progression. Very collaborative environment. People are really kind, caring, and invested in one another's success.

    Cons

    The company is so focused on social causes that they are losing perspective on their products and overall excellence in work. There are more meetings held to showcase a specific political perspective than there are to discuss how the business is doing and how it can continue to improve and succeed. People don't have the skills/capabilities they need to actually lead in their area, to innovate, or to problem solve.
