Our team and culture
We connect everything – people, process, data and things – and we use those connections to change our world for the better. We don’t just dream it, we do it every day at Cisco. And we’re doing it faster than ever before, in ways no one else can.
We innovate everywhere to create fresh ideas and possibilities. Taking bold risks to shape the future because we understand every failure is a success if we learn from it.
We make a meaningful difference for our people, our customers and the world around us. We support each other and work together to create shared success that will benefit everyone.
Our Cisco values reflect who we are, what we believe, and how we behave. They are foundational to our unique culture.
We change the world: We give our time and knowledge to create innovative technologies and positive experiences that make the world a better place. We think big and make no excuses.
We win together: We have the courage to take informed risks, simplify the complex and pursue excellence. We anticipate market transitions and chart new paths to relevant, meaningful solutions for our customers.
We make innovation happen: We recognize that when we bring together our collective experience, knowledge and ideas, we drive better solutions to help our customers and partners succeed and our business grow profitably. We leverage our technology to move quickly together, focused on delivering the results the business needs from us.
We focus intently on customers: We are a company built on relationships so we listen to our customers. We take their needs on as our own and move as quickly as they need us to. We deliver superior solutions to achieve their dreams and earn their trust as their most strategic business partner.
We respect and care for each other: We work, grow, learn and have fun together. We support and trust one another. We inspire each other. We celebrate diverse perspectives, encourage openness and reward team results.
We always do the right thing: We are honest and straightforward. We say what needs to be said and hold ourselves accountable. We earn the trust and confidence of others. Our integrity defines and leads us.

Sylvia, Associate Sales Representative
"As an early-in-career professional, I feel that Cisco is a great accelerator for your career development. Being in sales, the people I know here are driven and love to win, but do so through collaborating with others who come from different backgrounds, cultures and expertise. Finally, it never ceases to amaze me the amount of access you receive to senior leaders who are genuinely interested in your ideas to shape your ideal workplace."
Samir, Cross Functional Apprentice
"Cisco's flexibility as an employer extends from my day to day work, and being able to work from any location, to the flexibility to give back days to help charitable causes. That's really important for me, and I find it really rewarding."
Jo, Virtual Account Manager
“At Cisco we get a lot of flexibility in how we work, and that together with the opportunity to work on really interesting projects that can benefit the UK, with people I like, is a big factor for why I like to work at Cisco. While we work hard, the culture at Cisco is always very positive and a good balance of professionalism and fun, which makes it a place where you want to do great work.”
