    Pros

    Amazing company and outstanding senior exec leadership
    Really great co-workers
    Outstanding development and training programs
    Real diversity and CSR responsibilities which they take seriously

    Cons

    New leadership in my division drastically changed the culture, trust and real employee experience, you need to ensure that the culture the exec leadership believe in is adopted through the organisation

    Advice to Management

    There is a gap between what the Exec Leadership team promote from a values and culture perspective to what some managers/teams have.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (London, England) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I had received a phone interview where they asked behavioral questions and some technical questions. The lady was very friendly and helped me relax as it was the first time I had been interviewed. The process took about 30 mins and I was given time to think about my answer once I was asked it. Altogether it was a good experience as I was not pressured and was able to relax and give my answers.
