Director Business Development Interview

Director Business Development
San Jose, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Cisco Systems in October 2012.

Interview Details – Contacted by the hiring manager taken for lunch, offered the position right away. Going through some other interviews now, to satisfy the internal requirements, but deal is already signed and agreed.

Interview Question – No hard questions, in this company internal connections is the only way to get a job.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – as an internal hire in Cisco there is no room for any negotiation. If you are an external hire, you shoul dbe able to get the initial offer up by approx 20%, once hired it is VERY hard to get ANY salary increases.
