We are sorry to hear about your personal experience and appreciate you taking the time to inform us. While Cisco is focused on cutlure, we understand we always have room for improvement. With that said, there is still work to be done to ensure our culture resonates to all teams. I would recommend reaching out to People's & Communities (either in-person or through our anonymous feedback system) to make sure we can address any current culture situations that need improving. In regards to your confusion on parental leave benefits, we do have some great benefits in Germany. I recommend reaching out to your local team for more information if needed.

We appreciate all honest and relevant feedback, and no organization our size is perfect on every team no matter how much we aim for that. We will take the substance of the review back to our teams as we continue to strive to be a leader for empowering women in tech. We don't know if you're a current or past employee, but we've made so many strides in the last few years, with even bringing our executive leadership team to 50% women! If you're a current employee, please reach out to HR (either in-person or through our anonymous feedback system) to make sure we can address any current situations that need improving.
