    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore
    Application Details

    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

    Negotiation Details
    You really need to understand the grade levels and their salary bands in the company. HR looks to get you for the lowest cost always.
