"Cisco really walks the talk when it comes to diversity and inclusion - with 50% of the ELT now being women. It is a large organization, so there are pockets where this might not be the case, but my team has been very focused on promoting diversity and focused on attracting women and creating a workplace where they are set up to succeed."

"I've heard positive feedback from women about being able to take time off following the birth of a child. I've also known women to have job security upon their return from maternity leave, which is also a plus! "

"I can't speak for all of Cisco, but in my experience, the flexibility comes with the trust you cultivate with your manager and the ability to get your work done. Of course, expectations change with each position, however, I've always felt I got the flexibility I needed to balance work/life responsibilities. "

"It avoids the "bro" culture so common in other big tech companies. I think the biggest perk is how flexible they are with hours/wfh. Finally, the CEO has recently added multiple women to his leadership team which is great to see."

"It's crazy flexible - unless there's something I really need to be in the office for, I can work from home whenever I want. I also usually leave early to avoid traffic and finish the day from home."

"While the tech industry has a relatively low percentage of women as does Cisco, the company recognized the need for people from all points of view and all backgrounds. They have great policies, great compensation, and it's truly a family where we have each other's backs. Is it perfect? No, because we're humans and we're not perfect. But it's the closest thing I've seen. "
