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.

It's a good company to work for if you're a women but it does vary by function and team you work in. To get to the top though it is predominantly men.
