Ridiculous and tedious. Each interview is only about 30 mins and nothing much can be achieved out of this. IN addition candidates are being interviewed across all other functions which at times have no relation at all to your direct department and this is done to show collaborativeness as this company operates based on relationship and internal politics
How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at Cisco? What are the steps along the way?
Its mostly if you know somebody. This company is a very relationship based company that is full of internal politics.
