    I worked at WebEx full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Generally speaking, the majority of the people that are hired are bright, passionate and decent.
    - Cisco culture is generally good: geeky and business saavy
    - Executive Team is solid and reasonably visionary (though this varies)
    - Cisco has automated a lot of the low-hanging fruit of administrivia - e.g., expense reports - to reduce some of the clutter
    - You are part of a very large and powerful force in technology.
    - The company encourages people to do a lot in their communities, etc.

    Cons

    - Cisco has gotten into this weird habit of doing small lay-offs ~ every 6 months. Some of this is just a forcing function to help Managers who are not doing a good job of moving out under-performers. The list goes out and managers are allowed to put people on it. But it also creates an environment where everyone feels vulnerable. At the wrong place at the wrong time? Got re-orged to a Team managed by a former rival, who sees you as a threat? Regardless of performance, you can be RIF'ed.
    - Company is transitioning from traditional hardware/rout/switch & accompanying on-prem software dominated company to have a bigger emphasis on cloud-delivered software and subscription based business. It's a bit of a bumpy ride.
    - a little stodgy/old world tech (IBM-ish) in some areas.
    - all the things that go along with a being a huge company: e.g., grinding bureaucracy

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing in terms of walking that fine line of transitioning to Cloud-delivered software without killing the existing business.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at WebEx in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online through linkedin and a recruiter reached out to me about a week or so later. I spoke with the recruiter for about 30 minutes answering behavioral type questions as well as discussing the specifics of the role. About a week later spoke with the hiring manager who asked questions about my background, why Cisco, why Webex specifically, etc. Fairly straight forward.
