Great place with all options - hot desking, remote working and very good amenities in the offices, very cross-cultural making it a fun environment. Very people friendly, not too many management layers, trust based working style.....being a multinational the reporting is generally not in country which makes trust in your employees a very significant factor. Overall an excellent place.....no wonder Cisco is the #1 employer in Australia in 2020. Was #2 in 2019 & #3 in 2018 which shows the organization is getting even better. Also Cisco is among the top 10 ~ 15 Fortune 500 companies for several years which is testimony to the great management style of the organization for a very long period of time.
Pros
Cross-cultural and collaborative with a very relaxed work environment
Cons
Extended hours sometimes especially during quarter end & financial year end, but flexibility during the day makes up for it to some extent

Great work culture with amassing opportunity to work cross functionally with direct or indirect teams located in many and various countries across the globe. Very good management structure with ample opportunity for career progression. Sales is probably the more challenging side of the business but at the same time motivating and rewarding in terms of remuneration but also the opportunity of working with highly motivated and successful sales team, customers and channel partners to achieve tangible business outcomes and customer satisfaction.

I did my course at Deakin University. It was very informative as I am very confident working with Routers and switches. I could work as networking administrator.

Worked at Cisco Systems full-time for close to 10 years. Pros Great recognition (pay rise, bonuses, verbal recognition), supportive learning culture, flexible working, progressive work culture Cons Lots of organisational restructures which can make employees feel unsettled

If you're a contractor then you're a second class citizen. Great corporate culture and a company that's successfully reimagining itself as a software company

I was on a contract role (2 days a week) for almost 2 years and it was always busy but fun. Our HR team was composed of multicultural people but each treated each other as family. My manager was based in Japan and another colleague based in China but communication was never an issue as Cisco has all the high tech devices to be connected. I have enjoyed my stay in this company and would highly recommend it to applicants.
Pros
high tech devices
Cons
time differences
