    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (San Jose, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    This process was disjointed and dragged out over months, including contractors (randstad), coordinators, and Cisco employees. They were slow and unresponsive, and had the balls to let me speak to a VP for no reason. It required TREMENDOUS effort on my part - too much - to even get a response. Cisco employees were arrogant, aloof, and quite frankly, stupid. “We’ll get to $500m in (specific) security revenue is a pipe dream. Their folks cannot compete with Palo, Fortinet, Fireeye, and startups with the cheap salaries and inferior team.

    Easy interview process with two interviewers. One 30 minute interview, one case question about favorite Cisco product. Took a few weeks to receive offer. The rest of the questions were behavioral.

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cisco Systems.

    Interview

    I responded to an online posting for a field marketing manager role. After about a month, I was contacted by an internal recruiter. The call went well and she suggested we schedule more interviews with the hiring manager and staff. The hiring manager was quite rude. It seemed that she had already made up her mind that I wasn’t a good fit for the role before we even got on the phone. I never heard back from them.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cisco Systems in June 2019.

    Interview

    Application online, then recruiter screening, then two rounds of interviews with hiring manager, director, and two peers. It was pretty fast, and the recruiter kept me apprised every step of the way.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cisco Systems in March 2015.

    Interview

    I have a friend who works at Cisco and they recommended me for a position. I've heard such great things about working for the company so I was excited about the opportunity. I had two phone interviews for this remote position - one with the manager of the marketing team and another with a member of the team. Both went well but I never heard back from either. I followed up appropriately and professionally and was told by the manager that the position hadn't actually been approved yet. I wondered why they would bother putting me through two interviews for only a potential position? I found out months later that the manager had been let go and things fell through the cracks. A huge bummer for me as I had hoped that such a successful company and things more structured and put together before taking up so much of someone's time.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cisco Systems.

    Interview

    Multi-tiered interview process. No surprises.

    Negotiation

    The offer was fair at the time, so no negotiation was required. Never come into Cisco as a contractor, team lead, or non-people managing position (if you are not IT or Engineering), as promotions may never happen.
