With 274 offices in 96 locations worldwide, those looking to start a career at Cisco will have little trouble joining up and becoming a “Cisconian.” Yes friends, Cisco even has a name for its global community of associates, and the organization prides itself on its “Conscious Culture” of encouraging its associates to be themselves.
Cisco is consistently found at the top of best companies lists, and offers its employees an array of benefits including comprehensive health coverage, onsite fitness centers, paid volunteer time, and its unique ‘swapping” program; try swapping 20% or 100% of your job with someone else on either a temporary or permanent basis.
Salesforce has many locations in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, and in the Asia-Pacific.

In addition to the more traditional employee benefits such as healthcare coverage, PTO, and financial assistance and education, Salesforce has developed its B-Well Together program, which hosts a series of speakers who engage topics such as self-healing through self-transformation, learning to build resilience, the secret formula for a happy life, and many more!

Hewlett Packard Enterprise provides its employees with its Total Rewards program. This program includes a competitive salary with unlockable bonus potential based on overall performance. The company also encourages its associates to pledge up to four hours of paid time per month volunteering in their communities.
