I worked at Cisco Systems as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

The people I worked with were very friendly and quick to help. The campus was great and offered a variety of activities outside of the cubicle.

Cons

I was only an intern, but I was given little to no attention. I felt like all the tasks given to me were trivial and I was only there to fill in a quota. The environment itself is very depressing: a sea of grey cubicles and dim lighting makes it very difficult to be excited about your job.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better interaction with interns is crucial if you want to retain any of them. A little lighting goes a long way.
