Programs Manager

Sales

I've worked at Cisco off and on since the late 90's, both as a consultant and now, for the second time, as a full timer "blue badge." Cisco is extraordinarily diverse and has a fantastic culture for women. If considering a position at Cisco, I would get as many interviews as possible, with a variety of people and ask specific questions about the group. I have had a couple of bad managers and some rough situations, ironically the harassment was from a female manager. Look into employee groups and diversity and inclusion projects and activities - they are there but you do have to seek them on your own a bit.

Project Manager

Technical Services

Although the company has female executive leaders and encourages women in leadership, Gen X females still seem to be passed over for manager roles regularly. Most jobs within Cisco allow for flexible working hours and working remotely. However, you are also expected to be available at all hours. Cisco has a wonderful philanthropic culture with many opportunities to give back to the community. They also offer many employee run groups which allow you to expand your professional development/personal branding and network.

Business Development Manager

N/A

Cisco preaches inclusion and diversity and stands by this. There are a number of women and diverse employees in leadership positions, and development for female employees and leaders is very highly encouraged. I do think that men are still paid more than women (generally speaking across all industries), but do not believe gender plays a part at Cisco when salary/bonuses/raises are determined. There is always room for more women in tech and am proud I work for a company that promotes this from within!
