Cisco employee behind laptop

This just in. The sixth annual #WeAreCisco #LoveWhereYouWork employee photo contest has officially launched! It’s one of our favorite times of the year because we get to adventure with you, meet your kids, pets, spouses (oh, and even house plants) through sharing your personal stories. If you’re new here, read just a few stories on this blog and you’ll notice people really do love their jobs. 

This year, we’ve created some new contest categories that will allow you to get creative with sharing your photos since we’re all working from home. 

We’re the Number 1 Best Workplace (in case you missed it) 

In one photo, share why you think we’re world’s best place to work! 


We have video meeting fatigue, but we still make Webex fun. Whether it’s you and your Cisco bestie or your team celebrating a great moment – show us how you come together through Cisco technology. 

Cisco Setup 

One screen or multiple screens? Stand up or sit down? Ergo chair or core ball?Business on top, PJs on the bottom? Let’s see how you get through the workday. 

Cisco as Part of the Family 

From human kids to fur kids, from partners to parents – our families love where we work, too!  


Pets got swag. Employees got swag. Cisconians take swag to cool places. Show us your Cisco logo love!

Best Photography 

Oh. Snap! What the crop? If you can’t “shutter up” about a beautiful image, and all this lingo just “clicks” with you – you’re a photographer and we can’t wait to see what you’ll come up with this year! 

 Giving Back is in our DNA 

This is one of the top reasons we love working here – we can impact the world through our work and through our volunteer time. Show us how you give back. 

Bring Your Whole Self to Work 

We don’t wear a “work mask.” We don’t hide our tattoos or care if we have pink hair. How can you be yourself at Cisco?  

This is Connection 

The world we live in today has redefined life as we know it, but we have never stood stronger as one. Did your team hop on the Animal Crossing trend and play together? Did you have virtual happy hours or game nights?  Show us how you stayed connected with your Cisco peeps in a virtual world. 


There are lots of reasons we love it here – and you can’t put us in a box! Use this category for every other reason not mentioned here and post a photo with a caption of why.  


Employees can enter multiple times, but can only win once! Only full-time Cisco employees are eligible to win, though anyone can search on Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn for both #LoveWhereYouWork and #WeAreCisco you’ll be able to see the love story unfold! Like and share your favorites.  

Stay tuned for the winners in March. Here are some of our favorites from last year.
