#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
traveling 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 sizes 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

100% quota attainment, incentive rates may increase up to five

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.
