Altogether it was a good experience as I was not pressured and was able to relax and give my answers.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Cisco Systems (London, England (UK)) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Long with different stages. Do not expect to get a quick answer as the internal process is slow and involved HR, hiring manager and few other related functions (usually the corresponding account manager is a must). Look for the STAR technique when you answer the questions and you are on the tight way.
