Why Work at the Company?

Year after year, Cisco has distinguished itself as a 'Great Place to Work' for its diverse workforce. (https://www.greatplacetowork.com/best-workplaces/worldsbest/2017/cisco). Cisco's leadership understands that our edge doesn't just come from our cutting-edge technology. Our biggest asset is our employees. Two years ago, Cisco made a commitment to employees called the 'People Deal' by developing and sustaining 'Moments that Matter', which focuses on inspiring and engaging each employee in a meaningful way throughout their journey at Cisco. More specifically Cisco has created opportunities for leadership to veteran issues, partnerships with VSOs, and continuous training opportunities.
