About Cisco

Cisco is an American technology company, operating worldwide, that is best known for its computer networking products. As a company that sold its products mostly to other businesses, Cisco did not become a household name, but in the second decade of the 21st century, it was one of the largest corporations in the United States. Cisco helps seize the opportunities of tomorrow by proving that amazing things can happen when you connect the unconnected. An integral part of its DNA is creating long-lasting customer partnerships, working together to identify customers' needs and provide solutions that fuel their success.

In FY08 Cisco promoted 5722 employees to higher positions within the company. Cisco's Career Path Job Search allows its employees to use a global database of open positions and career opportunities to match job openings with their resumes, helping them to spot hidden opportunities. Career Path’s job agent feature allows employees to select and store criteria relevant to their career interests, then receive email notifications when career opportunities match their criteria.

Work-Life Balance

Cisco intentionally cultivates an inclusive work environment where employees can thrive and innovate, and Cisco can win. That’s why over 30,000 of its employees around the globe participate in Inclusive Communities - 28 Employee Resource Groups where employees encourage each other to network, develop leadership skills, serve as change agents, and learn to be informed allies to various cultures and perspectives.

Cisco has worked hard to build a culture of full-spectrum diversity, inclusion, and collaboration. Core values – to connect everything, innovate everywhere, and benefit everyone. Cisco believes it makes good business sense. These core values guide the company and demand that take a stand against actions that threaten the equal rights, safety, and dignity of its people, both inside the company and in the communities where they live. These values are also part of Cisco's People Deal – a strategy that is a contract that articulates what the company expects from its employees, and what they can expect from Cisco. It encourages employees to bring their whole selves to work and to create an environment of trust and mutual respect – an environment where integrity defines and leads.
