"There will be gender pay gap, and difficulty earning respect and having a voice if you are in engineering. In engineering, there will also be difficulty in getting promotions. There are no women in leadership roles above first line manager in my organization of 400."

"Cisco is a large company so I'm sure it varies by department but I had the absolute worst experience of my career working at Cisco. The culture was full of rampant sexual harassment and inappropriate comments, clear sexism, coupled with a complete lack of available HR and the constant threat of retaliation. I would not recommend the specific department I worked for to ANYBODY but its possible other departments are better."
