They tell you they want you to take off, if you need to but than make you feel bad that next day for doing
Good work life balance, many women in mid management positions but not much room for growth.
Great culture, people help each other out no matter where you are in the world. Using Cisco's own video technology to provide optimal collaboration tools and flexible working is embedded in the culture. Values family life.
Great place for women to work they walk the walk and talk the talk when it comes to family
Hours are demanding. Schedule can be slightly flexible but be prepared to put in a significant amount of hours.
There are not many women in the field sales department so district/regional meetings are more male-centric. At the last meeting, I was approached at the bar we were all at in our hotel by another account manager who got very possessive and aggressive. One of my male colleagues had to come intervene and we were able to go to a different area without any drama. There were plenty of managers present for all of this, all of whom were male, and they found it humorous if anything. The next night a woman in upper management was there and miraculously everyone started being very respectful towards the women in our group. I like what I do but I find that I am always on alert and have to watch what I say very carefully because anything too "girly" would fuel the fire. Territories are reassigned very frequently based on performance so while I could take maternity leave I am quite certain I would return to have lost all of my prime sales territory.
If you're an attractive young female you will be able to get away with not showing up to work. But if you gain a few pounds or get married you will be pushed out.
There are many female middle management, but none in higher positions that aren't typically 'female roles' such as HR and Marketing. There is lots of opportunity for women, but can be a little bit favoured towards men due to the nature of the working environment.
