    Pros

    * work-life balance
    * flexible and remote working
    * above average pay
    * provides training
    * low employee turnover
    * various projects, always there is something to do.

    Cons

    * it is an engineering and research focused company; though research and engineering could have been more intertwined. Currently, they seem a little bit disconnected.

    Advice to Management

    * look for ways to increase the interaction of different teams across cisco.

    Associate Systems Engineer Interview

    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.
