Information Technology University Program

Life at Cisco

We connect everything: people, processes, data, and things. We innovate everywhere, taking bold risks to shape the technologies that give us smart cities, connected cars, and handheld hospitals. We take difference to heart and give of ourselves.

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. At Cisco, you can be you, with us. #WeAreCisco.

Where we work

The IT University Program has opportunities around the globe with 5 hub locations in Bangalore, Bedfont Lakes, China, Raleigh, and our San Jose headquarters. These hub locations have a diverse mixture of experiences, with opportunities to grow and hone your skills. Upon successful completion of the program you will move back to the country for which you have applied.


Who we are

As an intern in our IT University Program, you'll have the opportunity to explore growing technologies within Cisco IT, learn about digital architectures, and contribute to the evolution of cloud computing, virtualization, and data center strategies. You'll have the opportunity to influence and participate in strategic projects, collaborate on internal and external facing initiatives to optimize company processes, and act as liaison to key business contacts for IT projects. Our mission is to be the industry leader and employer for the next generation, and by recruiting the very best and brightest – we’re able to achieve that vision.


How we work

Not only are we proud of our industry leading commerce experience and our ability to design and implement Cisco data centers and networks – but, we're committed to providing a workplace culture with opportunities for everyone to grow in their careers. Our employees are the first to experience the latest Cisco technologies to drive change and create superior solutions. Looking for training and development opportunities – our culture of continuous learning is powered by the Degreed.com platform to help build future IT skills, industry certification courses, and access to both internal and external learning content. Bring your unique talent to Cisco – share your ideas and be heard!


How we live

Our values define who we are. Giving back is engrained in the Cisco culture, and we encourage our employees to take time off to volunteer for causes that they're passionate about. We celebrate accomplishments through our peer-to-peer recognition tool, and we also pay it forward – our new-hire orientation and mentorship program is run by employees who were recently new hires themselves. We even have an IT "Best Place to Work" team that promotes inclusivity and fun!

"Cisco fosters a rich culture of innovation, technical excellence and thoughtful risk-taking. This commitment to raising the bar makes work both exciting and fulfilling, but what keeps me most excited to badging in to the office each morning, is the unwavering compassion shown by the people that sit next to you, share meals with you, stay late with you, and all help make Cisco such a special place to work."
