Go for it. When interviewing think about how strong your manager in promoting his/her team

You need to take control of your career - create and manage your own development plan, insert yourself in projects that interest you, network with other parts of the company and most importantly, don't rely on someone recognizing you for a raise or promotion. You need to be very vocal for your career to grow at Cisco.

    Match work to employee skills/interests. Frequent reorganizations have resulted in people being put in jobs that don't utilize their best skills/talents thus making the work experience "a job" vs. a career based on passion

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Depends on what someone is looking for from a job. Traditionally, employees need to wait 3-5 years for a merit raise, 5 or more years for a promotion, and frequent reorganizations make it difficult to get things done. On the flip side, great work from anywhere policy, great benefits, and overall, good people to work with.

Maternity leave will leave an asterix over your name, unfortunately.

They believe in family first. They encourage diversity and inclusion without it feeling like a forced HR initiative. They foster innovation and give you the tools to grow in your career.

Cisco corporate is great but not all of the perks translate to the individual acquisitions/business units.
