    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Cisco Systems.

    A recruiter contacted me over Linkedin. A total of 3 rounds and none of them lasted over 30 minutes. They also asked me to provide a power point presentation on one of the Threat modeling scenarios. I never got a chance to explain that but yet they liked it. When I tried to get in touch after a week I did not any response. A week after they said that the position went on hold.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cisco Systems.

    Interview

    One of the best interview processes I have been a part of in the last year! From application to the first interview to the offer, communication with the recruiter and team have exceeded my expectations. This company makes interviews feel more like a conversation and less like being in front of a firing squad! This should be a standard for how the process should look!
