Cisco

IT Project Manager, IT

January 1970

In my area of Cisco IT there are a lot of women. We are still the minority, and I wish there were more of us. The good news is, in my experience, we are treated equally with the men in terms of respect, daily interactions, job roles, and leadership opportunities. I don't know much about people's pay, but of what little I have heard, the women are paid similarly to the men. Cisco's good at giving back to the community. I have participated in Cisco sponsored activities and groups designed to encourage more girls to study STEM in school and join IT. I would like to point out that there are also lots of IT jobs available to women who do NOT have STEM degrees. Not all of us are engineers. I did not study STEM, and I am a project manager. You should apply anyway, even if you don't have a STEM degree. Don't be intimidated by the term IT, there are many other roles in this area that don't require engineering. There is a place for you somewhere in Cisco.

    I am in IT at Cisco and in general, it is very flexible. Some roles are less flexible depending on the work (access to data centers, etc.) or the manager (some still hold "be here to work" values). However, the large majority of IT roles are very flexible, especially if there are circumstances that would be best served by remote work. For example: school schedules, appointments, medical conditions, off-hours meetings, bad traffic, inclement weather, travel, etc. It's a little more strict on contractors than Cisco employees, but still great compared to many other companies.
  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    None taken

    I didn't take maternity leave here, but of my coworkers who did, both mothers and fathers are encouraged to take the offered leave and sometimes take more unpaid leave too. I have not seen anyone be negatively treated or let go by asking to take any kind of requested leave (family, medical, personal). I have also seen new employees be hired while pregnant and go on maternity leave shortly after, and still be retained long term when they come back.

IBM should not be seen only as a place for one to enjoy work from homes. Our leader Ginni has transformed the whole organization where we are now competitive and have everything on cutting edge technologies. Men and women are treated equal and we have women as leaders in multiple fields.

It all depends on who your manager is; if the manager is not understanding you will not get any work-life balance.

    Maybe. There a e a lot of women working at this organization; however the men are the only ones that get recognized and promoted. As this company has a lot of contract positions, contractors are always trying to get hired in. Mostly only the men get hired in.
