Reviews by Cisco graduate employees
- starstarstarstarstar4.7GradAustralia surveyed 23 graduates working at Cisco. Read on to get an insider’s view on life as a graduate. 23 responses.
- The culture, the focus on development and training, work flexibility.
- Continual development support and backing.
- Work life balance, flexibility, travel and the opportunity to define your role motivates you to work to your greatest potential
- Lots of learning opportunities Flexible working environment
- There's a huge network of support. The company encourages ideas and creativity to drive innovation regardless of how much experience you've had. The work is challenging and you are not treated as a 'coffee runner' - rather, you are treated as a true full time employee. The teams also encourage personal development and are fully supportive of training and rotations.
- Always switched on
- The need to self-motivate / something I undermined
- High workload
- Team is so large and distributed globally that we only get to all meet once a year - although we meet in Vegas
- Not really a minus, but you will have to keep studying forever
What insiders say about…
I am in pre-sales to consult and advise our sales team to drive business growth.
Culture is open and flat, Anyone, anywhere is available to all people for advice. Large company means that you often don't know people even if they sit on the same floor. Very rewards/financially driven. Big incentives for sales success. I have made some of the best friends in my life from the company.
The interview process was one of the most unique and my favorite interview process. Once submitting your resume, the next step was to submit a video resume, then do a behavioral interview followed by an assessment centre. The assessment centre is split into 4 parts, a multiple choice quiz, an interview, a sales/engineering pitch and a role play.
Everything from technical questions in the quiz to behavioral questions asking about your experience in certain situations.
Be yourself, interviewees want to see if you'll fit well into the company culture. Have examples of how you specifically influenced a situation to achieve an outcome. Come prepared but don't rely on notes in presentations, your interviewees want to see you and how you react to a situation.
Company is flexible but i need to work over time to get all jobs done
Extremely attractive for a fresh grad

Everyone is always accessible. In person, via email or IM chat. You can be friends with your managers but come time for performance reviews you can maintain professionalism.
Cisco will kick off the year with our Global Sales kick off either run locally in Sydney for Australia/New Zealand or in Las Vegas. Outside of the annual sales kick off Cisco also regularly holds video training per quarter and each team individually will create training schedules in accordance to roles and requirements.
Promotion possibilities are available to employees and it is up to your knowledge, drive, commitment, capabilities to make the move. Cisco is becoming more early in career focused so there's been no better time to work at Cisco than now with the range of jobs being made available.
I was given many opportunities just the same as many other male engineers.
They run different programs and campaign to support.
I've worked on the delivery of an awareness project to promote Disability in the workplace. There's plenty of opportunities to volunteer your time for disadvantaged groups.
This answer will change next year - Cisco is moving into a new building in North Sydney around mid-late next year which will promote activity based working and showcase all of our technology. At the moment (outside of our demo center) the office is a little bare due to our pending move. The dress code at Cisco is a range of professional business attire to business casual depending on your schedule and who you'll meet. We also have casual Friday's.
