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.

there are fantastic people, and sometimes not so fantastic people, just like you find in so many companies.

I've worked here for 7 years. I do think that they are trying to include more diversity, and although that seems to be true at the top, as it trickles down, there are fewer women in leadership roles, and my perception is that women don't get promoted as quickly or often as men, but I do think the company is taking steps to rectify that and include more opportunities for women.

It can be long hours for everyone that works at Cisco but there is a ton of flexibility.

I have been working here for 7 years in a support role. It's an intense environment - constantly changing. The hours are often long. I believe women are treated fairly here - but the support roles are not given fair compensation. Support roles do not have great routes for advancement, and upper management ( not your immediate management) is always looking for ways to spend less. For example $50 in training materials was like pulling teeth to get authorization for but the sales team got an Aerosmith concert. Makes one wonder about the budget.

I have worked here for 8 years and think it is a good place to work mainly due to flexibility but also benefits and a good collaborative culture.

I've been with Cisco for 12 years. Lots of women in individual contributor roles and senior leadership. The company has a women't network for it's employees and customers. I like this because you are exposed to people outside the company as well for networking. I've never taken maternity leave, no opinion on that, but there's lots of flexibility and working from home is encouraged so that helps working moms out a lot. I love it here.
