- 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 manage a team of 15 Sales Account Managers. Responsible for their success, development, and growth.
You are always assured of the support you can get from your fellow colleagues. And a very friendly and happy culture for afterhours activities.
4 stages of hiring process (cv screening + Assessment center) Within Assessment center, there is technical, behavioral, and other abilities test are conducted.
What is your strength/weakness? Have you ever experienced any difficult situation to handle customer/colleague during work or project? what actions do you take to resolve situation?
Learn about Cisco, technical and other market interests. When you do technical interview, don't over exposure yourself. In other words, if you not 100% sure about it don't mention it, talk something you know pretty well. (be honest)
Depending on your role Cisco is extremely flexible with work hours if you have to be at an appointment or work from home. As long as you get your job done, add value and meet deadlines your place of work is the place that makes you the most productive
Your opportunity to earn as a graduate in your first role is quite lucrative and depending on the role you choose to move into after the grad program you'll make the decisions on the importance of bonuses etc.
Working in sales we get team bonuses which usually results in a few days offsite in a different state or nice location. For professionals who achieve in our top 10% of the company globally (Champions Club) you have the opportunity to spend a week in a local theatre (overseas) e.g. somewhere in APJ, EMEAR or the Americas. For professionals who achieve in our top 1% of the company (Chairman�s Club) globally you will spend a week in Hawaii celebrating with senior leadership.
All of my managers have been crucial to my development.
Intensive sales training from across the world, including board members of major companies, I.T security specialists and top sales coaches.
I've been promoted five times in my tenure. The company provides the opportunities for people who are motivated to obtain them.
High-level of diversity WRT gender, ethnicity. LGBT ratios are equivalent to demographic distribution. No issues with recruitment, retention, promotion, child care, maternity leave, etc.
Question is unclear. Does not define the nature of the privilege. My organization projects itself as a diverse and socially-responsible place of work.
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.
Company has many offices across the globe. Dress code depends on the country. Male dress code in Australia is quite flexible. Business shirt/polo shirt, enclosed shoes, pants.
Cisco has moved into hot desking to remove our carbon footprint and as our new building is in progress we will most likely have state of the art facilities.Join us to bookmark!
