    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Competitive products, partner relationship, global scales. good pay and benefits

    Cons

    career growth is hard. it is a low growth company. all roles are full.

    Advice to Management

    Be more specific and directive. too difficult to understand both top management and functional management clearly

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cisco Systems.

    Interview

    Un entretien téléphonique suivi d'un rendez-vous skype qui permet d'échanger sur la vision de l'entreprise, le futur, les challenges à venir. Les questions étaient pertinentes, intelligentes et respectueuses de la vie privée. Le manager était à l'écoute et ouvert à la discussion.
