RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK – Cisco recently cut some 500 jobs at its operations in Silicon Valley, but whether any cuts are being made at its large RTP campus isn’t clear.

A Cisco spokesperson confirmed the cuts to WRAL TechWire.

“Over the last few years, we have been transforming Cisco and driving innovation to deliver even greater value to our customers and partners. It’s important that we make decisions to continually ensure that our investments and resources are aligned with strategic growth areas of the business and customer demands,” the spokesperson said.

“As we realign some of our teams, we are working closely with impacted employees to match them where possible with the wide variety of roles currently open across Cisco.”

Cisco cut 480 jobs in California, according to layoff notices known as WARN. These came after 460 cuts in December as Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins, a UNC-Chapel Hill graduate, continues to reshape the tech giant more toward software and services and aware from previous reliance on hardware.

Although there has been talk of cuts in RTP, no layoff notice has been filed with the North Carolina Department of Commerce that would indicate a large number of cuts. A Commerce spokesperson confirmed there has been no notice received from Cisco.

“‘As you’re aware, we file WARN as required by state/local requirements,” the spokesperson noted.

“If you haven’t seen that in North Carolina, that indicates no WARN was filed there.”

Cisco employs several thousand full-time employees as well as contractors in the Triangle.
