#WeAreCisco. We are all unique, but collectively we bring our
talents to work as a team, to develop innovative technology and
power a more inclusive, digital future for everyone. How do we do
it? Well, for starters - with people like you!
Nearly every internet connection around the world touches Cisco.
We're the Internet's optimists. Our technology makes sure the data
travelling at light speed across connections does so securely, yet
it's not what we make but what we make happen which marks us out.
We're helping those who work in the health service to connect with
patients and each other; schools, colleges, and universities to
teach in even the most challenging of times. We're helping
businesses of all shapes and size to connect with their employees
and customers in new ways, providing people with access to the
digital skills they need and connecting the most remote parts of
the world - whether through 5G, or otherwise.
We tackle whatever challenges come our way. We have each other's
backs, we recognize our accomplishments, and we grow together. We
celebrate and support one another - from big and small things in
life to big career moments. And giving back is in our DNA (we get
10 days off each year to do just that).
We know that powering an inclusive future starts with us. Because
without diversity and a dedication to equality, there is no moving
forward. Our 30 Inclusive Communities, that bring people together
around commonalities or passions, are leading the way. Together
we're committed to learning, listening, caring for our communities,
whilst supporting the most vulnerable with a collective effort to
make this world a better place either with technology, or through

ranges for sales positions include base and incentive compensation
target. Individual pay is determined by the candidate's hiring
location and additional factors, including but not limited to
skillset, experience, and relevant education, certifications, or
training. Applicants may not be eligible for the full salary range
based on their U.S. or Canada hiring location. The recruiter can

the standard rate of 1% of incentive target for each 1% revenue
attainment against the quota up to 100%. Once performance exceeds
100% quota attainment, incentive rates may increase up to five
times the standard rate with no cap on incentive compensation. For
non-quota-based sales performance elements such as strategic sales
objectives, Cisco may pay up to 125% of target. Cisco sales plans
do not have a minimum threshold of performance for sales incentive
compensation to be paid.
