Posted February 08, 2019 07:54:09 A new Cisco Network Engineering engineer says he doesn’t care about money or the perks of his position.
“I don’t care that much about it, because I love it.
It’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me,” said John Kapp, who works for Cisco’s networking division.
“My job is to make it work, not to make money.”
The Cisco Network engineer said he earned $200,000 a year as an engineer in the US and Canada before joining Cisco as an independent contractor in 2014.
The job he has now has paid $250,000, he said, though he could not disclose the salary.
He did say he’s looking for a new home.
“It’s going to take a while, but I think that’s the most I could hope for,” he said.
The Cisco employee, who is not named in the report, has a degree in computer science and a master’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Waterloo in Canada.
He is also a Certified Engineer in Engineering and Computer Science, a certification that certifies a person’s knowledge and experience in the field.
He has not worked on any Cisco product for over a year, according to his LinkedIn profile.
He also worked at another networking company, which is listed as his employer.
The other company, Kapp said, is an engineering consulting firm, but he declined to identify the company.
Cisco declined to comment on the employee’s compensation or his future work.
Kapp left the engineering company in April 2018 and now works at Cisco as a Cisco Network engineering manager.
“The salary is not that important to me, because that’s not the job I love,” he told The Wall Street Journal in a phone interview.
“You’re not going to make more money if you’re not doing something that is fun.”
He also said he would not be interested in working at a competitor, but Cisco declined comment.
“If we could do a little bit of that [in the future], we would,” Kapp told The Journal.
“But right now, it’s not a priority.”
Cisco, which has about 50,000 employees worldwide, has been growing at a solid clip, but it has been losing customers over the past few years.
The company said it is currently in the process of laying off about 1,000 workers, including the networking engineer.
Cisco said it had about 6,000 engineers in the United States as of February 2019, but that number is expected to increase.
It said the number of employees at its main offices in the U.S. was now below 6,600, which means it has lost about 6 percent of its global workforce over the last year.
“As a global company, we are experiencing a global business downturn,” Cisco said in a statement.
“We are focused on increasing our workforce and we are hiring as we go.”
The layoffs are not the first time Cisco has cut employees.
In 2016, it cut 600 employees in the telecom division and another 400 in engineering.
Cisco, based in Mountain View, California, said in that statement that it would not comment on its internal operations or on individual employees.
The move comes as a wave of layoffs hit the tech industry as companies struggle to keep pace with technology companies like Amazon and Microsoft.
A similar wave hit the retail sector in 2019, with thousands of jobs being lost in stores such as Nordstrom and Macy’s.
The tech industry is also facing a shortage of workers in the retail industry as Amazon and Apple expand into that sector.
Cisco has been among the most successful companies in the tech sector.
It has grown its market share to more than 80 percent of the $11.3 trillion in U.N. digital transactions.
Cisco also has a huge network of data centers that handle about a quarter of the world’s Internet traffic.
