Cisco allows flexibility for work/life integration. Strong female executives provide inspiration on a regular basis.

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.

    The technology makes it easy for me to flex my work and life together. It's a give and take made easier through technology.

It is a great place to work and I believe Cisco does everything they can to better themselves within this space. They care about women and equality and show this through their actions. The flexible work hours and working from home make it a lot easier for mothers, as well.

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.

I feel motivated to work hard because there are so many opportunities for women to advance and to be elevated here. I consistently feel encouraged, and I feel that the people working around me are trying to empower me.

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.
