    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cisco Systems in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Not the most difficult of the interviews. Average level of questions in coding interviews. Fundamental data structures and algorithms questions. They expect for a reasonable level of code quality in the answers. You can't get by writing crappy code eventhough the problem may look simple. You talk to 4 to 5 of your potential team mates and then your potential manager during the interview process
