"I worked for Cisco Systems as a Software Development Engineering Intern with the NOSTG team at Boxborough , MA. I found the company culture to be excellent and I also had the opportunity to learn a lot during the twelve weeks of my internship. I also had the excellent opportunity of getting to meet some of the stalwarts in the Networks industry and also got to interact with them on a one-on-one basis. Overall , the experience was better than I could have ever hoped for."

"I was employed by Cisco Systems from June of 1999 to December of 2018. During this period, I was involved in several different product development teams. Cisco employs approximately 70,000 people, so their internal management processes are heavily automated. The biggest challenge in working at Cisco is dealing with its limited agility to meet market requirements."

"I worked for Cisco for over 8 years as a Program Manager in service. I thought highly of the CEO and upper management, I looked to learn more leadership skills and worked hard. I became a distinguished Toastmaster and loved my job. However as time went on cost cuts required me to train an overseas team to do our job and the entire department was out sourced. Since then I went out and started my own business."
