There were three rounds of telephonic interview. Then a written test. Two more rounds of person to person interview. This was followed by a telephonic interview with HR.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Cisco Systems India in February 2008.

    Interview Details

    There was a disconnect between the HR (recruitment is outsourced) and the manager who was conducting interviews. The HR did not inform me about the interview timing. The relieving date was misinterpreted by the recruiter and proved a problem that had to be raised to the hiring manager.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Cisco Systems India in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is very systematic. However they have the usual delays since they are a big company and processes have to be followed. However they do stay in touch in the interim period and provide assurances to keep candidates interested.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    The negotiation phase was short and sweet. The offer I received initially was not up to my expectations, however they were reasonable about it and we came to a figure both sides agreed upon quite quickly. There was no beating about the bush or going back and forth.
