    “A genuine sense of family” makes the culture stand out at this information technology giant, where new parents get up to 13 weeks of paid leave (nonprimary caregivers get four weeks), plus more available unpaid. A day off for birthdays, plus five paid days to volunteer, helps put “the Cisco experience truly above any other.”Read Great Place to Work review here.
