Featured Review

Former Intern - Intern

I worked at Cisco Systems

Pros

Had an amazing year-long internship experience in the IT org. Everyone was very friendly, a lot of funded events were organised and I felt part of the wider team. Management was approachable and let... you in on the bigger decisions being made. I was able to take responsbility for my own work and decide the direction of my projects - manager was always approving of my work.

Cons

While it didn't affect me, there was a lot of re-org in IT so I saw many team mates leave after knowing them for 6+ months which was sad. The general rate of work seems quite slow, which is great for... someone who wants a comfortable 8h 5 day job but if you're more driven you might want to consider client-facing work or a SME.

Advice to Management

Keep supporting interns :)

Current Contractor - Senior Project Manager
