Management is unfair

1.0
EE technician - May 2021
I worked with Cisco almost 5 yrs and they kept me on contract all the time. They moved me around and I was happy to locate to work. But the important thing I dislike is manager was unfair and they were favor of their people who worked long time for them. The Co-worker wasn’t corporate in team work, wasn’t share information about work while they needed my help to work. And when issues come up they’re always listen to their people and gave me a threatening to laid off. I’m very happy when I left Cisco and never came back. They called several times to rehire but thank you, I don’t want to work in unfair management.

Fun and open College environment

North Lake College Instructor - Irving, TX - April 2021
Many of the student in my classes were working professionals that wanted to become Cisco CCNA engineers. Classes and labs were always full. Many of the students would return to the campus to let me and other instructors know how they apricated the information that we shared with them. Because of their training they were able to get certified and obtain new job.
