Cisco #WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our
talents to work as a team and make a difference powering an
inclusive future for all. We embrace digital, and help our
customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may
think we're "old" (36 years strong) and only about hardware, but
we're also a software company. And a security 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, give our egos a break, and give of
ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take
accountability, bold steps, and take difference to heart. Because
without diversity of thought and a dedication 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.
Pop culture geek - Many of us are. Passion for technology and world
changing - Be you, with us. We will ensure that individuals with
