      What’s the grade level?

      The Org has gone through radical changes last year. All the leadership is new. Which team in CCTG?

      I was told WebEx group. I'm not sure about the exact team. Also, the recruiter has not told anything about grade yet.

      At 15% bonus, that reads like a G10.

      G10 is technical leader right?

      Tech leader is G11. G10 is still IC.

      Then it's definitely better. Not sure if you can push more without counter offers nowadays.

    Ask for G11 (Tech Lead), If you have good coding skills, system design, project lead experience and 11YOE.

    Most Grade 10’s Don’t get Joining bonus and RSU’s and 175 K base, that’s a good offer

      I think that’s good
      We can’t negotiate more without costing offers.
      Refreshers are good if you perform too well in Cisco.

      That means you'll be getting 15K + 18.3K for 3 years as RSUs and that continues if you get again perform well. If not, then what will you get after 4 years as in RSU?

      Yeah you are tight, you might get low refreshers or some ppl don’t get refreshers too
      It’s depends on team and budget and manger

    That’s a healthy offer. And Cisco’s RSU are like $$ in hand. Not sure what company you’re coming from, but Cisco has a world of opportunities to offer once you’ve been there a while.

      Tell me about this world of opportunities. As a high performing G12 all I feel is lock in.

    If there are paying this for G10, why do they low ball for G6?

      Because G6 is entry level basically with a masters. If you haven’t proven yourself in the industry, why should someone pay you top dollar...and we’re not competing against FANG really
