We Are Cisco

#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a

team and make a difference. Here’s how we do it.

We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital

businesses. Some may think we’re “old” (30 years strong!) and only about hardware,

but we’re also a software company. And a security company. A blockchain company.

An AI/Machine Learning company. We even invented an intuitive network that adapts,

predicts, learns and protects. No other company can do what we do – you can’t put us

in a box!

But “Digital Transformation” is an empty buzz phrase without a culture that allows for

innovation, creativity, and yes, even failure (if you learn from it.)

Day to day, we focus on the give and take. We give our best, we give our egos a

break and we give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take

accountability, we take bold steps, and we take difference to heart. Because without

diversity of thought and a commitment to equality for all, there is no moving forward.

So, you have colorful hair? Don’t care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots?That’s cool.
