    I have been working at Cisco Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Aggressively driving innovation for the past few years especially in IOT
    Can see good work culture spreading in IOT leading to high productive teams
    Interesting projects
    Good benefits
    Lots of women engineers. Great support for women and moms
    Can work from home and no set timings as long as the committed work gets done responsibly which is a huge plus.

    Cons

    Work life balance can take a hit sometimes depending on projects especially with geographically distributed projects. Should know how to do time management efficiently.

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sydney
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Cisco Systems (Sydney) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The process was long with a number of different stages. The assessment centre was nerve racking but, very much aligned to the role you're expected to do. The assessment centre includes a personal interview, test, presentation and role play. Once through the job I believe the associate program is absolutely second to none. Not many companies invest as much time, effort and money into early in career as Cisco does.
