There were a total of 2 interviews. One on my school campus with a senior engineer from the local office branch and one on Cisco campus in San Jose.
We had a round-robin group interview on Cisco campus where each candidate would go to a different table each round. There were many people that day and they did a decent job of taking us through Cisco and giving us a taste of what it was like to work there. Even though we all dressed up, the atmosphere was very relaxed and informal.
Most of the managers I interviewed with weren't natural born US citizens. This was later reflected in the teams that they managed. Cisco is one of the few large companies out there that's very generous when it comes to immigration paperwork and family benefits. As a result, their workforce and the candidate roster tend to be comprised mostly of H1-B visas.
For a young person born and raised in America, they may struggle to fit in here in the San Jose Cisco campus. However, that largely depends on the team and project that you work in.
