Flexible working is part of who we are at Cisco and we truly believe that our culture of flexibility plays a big part in our success. Its not a ‘one size fits all’ approach and our flexibility really does change depending on the needs of the person. Flexible working comes in many forms and we have a flexible attitude to how, when and where our people work and that includes working from home.
probably the best in the industry! Cisco has its own collaboration platform, Webex, which allows employees to connect whenever, wherever. This said, some teams expect you to have some flexibility and attend meetings after working hours due to time zone differences.
Very common across the board. It's of great value when you need to focus on getting things done and want to avoid wasting time commuting to the office.
Field roles have a great deal of flexibibility , not just working from home but work from anywhere and at times that suits, makes work life balance much easier and you become more productive
Allows you to manage your time
Company provides you with virtual cisco office hardware to make you work from home like from the office
Easy to work from home, laptops provided and devices to make this as productive as possible
The company not only allows working from home, it fully embraces it. It is not frowned upon, you don't get hints that working from home is not real working, none of that. The company measures your performance, not your office attendance. Depending on your role, you don't ever have to go to the office, unless you want to.
As virtual system engineer, you can work form home or the office. It's very flexible. There's no micromanagement. As long as you are meeting your target, management will give you a lot of freedom.
The best thing about CIsco
You are able to get a CVO (Cisco Virtual Office) which makes it pretty much like being in the office. Other tools make this easier namely Webex, Jabber, Spark etc. One of the best things about working at Cisco. Usually WFH 2 days a week, ensuring most of the time I'm in for important meetings etc. Accepted on the whole as long as work of good quality is getting done
