Company Summary:

Cisco Systems, Inc. is an American multinational technology conglomerate based in San Jose, California. What Cisco focuses on is the development, manufacturing and selling of networking hardware, software, telecommunications equipment, and other high-tech products and services. Numerous companies were acquired by Cisco: WebEx, OpenDNS, Jabber, and Jasper, making Cisco specialize in particular tech markets, domain security, and energy management. Cisco was reincorporated in Delaware on January 2021.

Cisco’s history may be traced back to 1984 when Sandy Lerner, together with her husband, Leonard Bosack, founded Cisco. Cisco’s primary product has roots in Stanford University where Lerner was the director of computer facilities and her husband was in-charge of the computer science department’s computers. Bosack and his students used technology on the campus to link all of the school’s computer system to “talk” to one another, conceptualizing a box that runs as a multiprotocol router called “Blue Box”.  This became a key to Cisco’s early success.

Cisco’s success makes them offer a wide range of benefits for the people. This includes health insurance, wellness programs, and a flexible work culture. Employees and their family members are encouraged to explore these plans and options being offered to them.
