I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Cisco Systems in June 2010.
Interview Details – Too many interviews, more than 12 to go to the final round. Very repetitive questions and procedures in all of them. Lengthy process that took more than 4 months to conclude. Highly respectful during the interviews, but long time consuming. When offer is done, a lot of pressure is exerted to join the company as soon as possible, with extreme urgency. This is a paradox taking into account the time the whole process took.
Interview Question – Silence. A sudden, unexpected silence just waiting for me to say something. Better to have something prepared to say when that happens and not improvise. Answer Question
