"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. "

"I work in a building with a designated area for customers. Sometimes the customers make me feel uncomfortable (i.e. a look or a wink). As soon as I walk into the Cisco side of the building I feel safe and respected. This juxtaposition has really highlighted the values of the company for me! There are also female centric employee resource organizations with great programming if you know where to look. I work in HR so inclusion and equality are top of mind for many and I have had a great experience. However, I believe there is room for improvement in other areas of the company. "

"Is Cisco perfect? No. But they acknowledge that and actively work on it - focusing on pay parity, diversity in tech, holding events like Girls Power Tech, etc. I can't be prouder of the diversity of our executive team. I've worked at a lot of companies where it's clear that they are doing things to check a box. Cisco really cares."
