About us

We connect everything: people, processes, data, and things. We innovate everywhere, taking bold risks to shape the technologies that give you smart cities, connected cars, and handheld hospitals. And we do it in style with unique personalities who aren’t afraid to change the way the world works, lives, plays and learns.

We are thought leaders, tech geeks, pop culture aficionados, and we even have a few purple haired rock stars. We celebrate the creativity and diversity that fuels our innovation. We are dreamers and we are doers.

We're combining our technology with industry-leading global intelligence and our focus on cyber skills to help make the UK the safest place on earth to be online. And we're not in this fight alone. That's why we're focusing on digital and cyber skills through the Cisco Networking Academy - so the people who use the internet in the UK can become part of its defence. We also work with a wide range of public and private sector partners, including the country's leading security experts, from the National Crime Agency and the National Cyber Security Centre, to GCHQ and the Internet Watch Foundation.

If we, as technology leaders and future employers, partner with government and education to address the opportunity now, we will ensure that the UK cements its place as a digital leader.
That is why we run, support and fund a number of initiatives as part of a mission to make the UK amongst the most technically advanced and highly skilled countries. It is also why we committed to train an additional 250,000 people in the UK by 2020.

Culture and Values

What Makes Cisco’s culture unique?

Culture is a specific way of life. We care deeply about a positive experience for all.

  • A diverse and inclusive environment: Where everyone feels welcome and celebrated.
  • Unique characteristics: Our principles are embodied by all, and are often the reason many choose to join and stay
  • The Cisco experience: How we interact each day with our teams, leaders, and meaningful work

We are self-aware of ourselves and our environment. We feel accountable and empowered to contribute to a culture where everyone thrives and where we intentionally seek out, learn, understand, and appreciate who - and what - surrounds us. That’s what a Conscious Culture is all about.

From our technology and diversity to giving back and our people – take it from our employees on why they love working at Cisco! They created this graphic representing how they feel about our culture.
