    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Solid portfolio and huge customer base. Great base salary and they reward well when over achieving on the goals. Great sales culture.

    Cons

    A lot of organisational change. Redundancies at least twice a year. Feels very unstable.

    Advice to Management

    Make the place to work a little more stable. Stop the massive org changes. Reduce the redundancy activities.

    Associate Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England

    Positive Experience
    Average 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.
