Generally I believe they are treated fairly but management is male-dominated and not diverse, which makes it tougher for women to "network" with them.

This company relies *very* heavily on contractors, which means they can drop you at any time with no warning and haven't made any commitment to you as a long-term contributor to the company's success. Women I encountered who did have power were not nurturing at all to other women. Cisco operates as though it's still a startup and senior execs expect immediate results from quite complex projects. Initiatives therefore don't receive any real time or focus towards success before they are dropped for being ineffective.

Blatant sexual harassment, bullying and unprofessional behavior. HR's only response was to give a one-hour canned general HR training session to the collective team. The kind of training that is meant to be a legal obligation only. Managers largely looked the other way or took care of their own boys club. The HR director I spoke to explicitly said that cases reported typically turn into "he said, she said" and that there are "rules against recording conversations" that could be deemed as proof. There may be parts of the company where this kind of thing does not happen, but I didn't stick around to find out.

A majority of women who work here are primarily in support roles.

Roles can isolate, unless you are willing to do the extra work and market yourself to others

Work long hours, but the team work atmosphere in sales in second to none. At Cisco you win together and you lose together. Great support!

I've been a Cisco employee and yes the workforce is primarily male but I have not seen any issues due to that. There are several female networking groups that one could join.

I've worked here for 4 1/2 years and there are a lot of women working here, but predominantly in support roles. Generally I believe they are treated fairly but management is male-dominated and not diverse, which makes it tougher for women to "network" with them. Mid-level women don't seem to advance because of these subtle issues. Also, while maternity leave is generous here I think women are judged harshly by some colleagues and managers for taking the full time.

Extremely long hours, no balance, have to work on holidays and weekends as well for no additional pay. No diversity, predominantly indian male population whos only aim in life is to work with nothing else going on.
