Cisco Systems Inc. has cut about 500 Silicon Valley jobs, according to documents filed with the state of California. A filing said 397 employees at its San Jose headquarters and 91 in Milpitas, Calif., were laid off as of July 31. The jobs cut were mostly in engineering roles. Cisco shares fell in after-hours trading Wednesday after the company gave a disappointing forecast in its fiscal-fourth-quarter earnings report.
