My understanding is they are a separate entity owned by Cisco. How’s the work culture and how’s the compensation structure like? Do you get yearly stock refreshers?

      The cisco leper colony is also full of rage clowns. Appdynamics won the game.

    Meraki definitely has more of a younger startup vibe. Better benefits, catered lunch and dinner every day and Lyft credits. Salary less structured than Cisco, more dependent on what you negotiate on the way in.

      Not as heavily graded as Cisco. Based on what you can negotiate.

      Why would people ever consider coming over to Cisco from Apple?

    As a Cisco employee, you don’t get to interact with them much. You can’t go to the building with your badge. You don’t get the same set of benefits. Apparently their grade structure is different.

    Cisco wants to keep hands off as much as possible.

      What’s an equivalent leveling for Apple ICT5 in Cisco or Miraki ?

      Cisco needs to keep the damage of Cisco away from Meraki. Let’s see how Viptela goes.

      The two are a nice control/experiment subject pair.

      Does anyone really think Viptela will survive contact with the cisco leper colony?

    Does anyone have an idea on new grad compensation for Meraki? Seems like a great environment and culture which I would definitely prefer compared to a huge company. I’m considering an internship there but if it’s not going to be able to match FAANG levels I might have to reconsider.

    • they won’t compare with FAANG in pay. But they sure have a good culture.

    No stock. (Not atleast in the lower levels). Yes they have a different grade system compared to Cisco. Culture is very good, lot of perks and vibrant office environment. Compensation may be comparable at Cisco standards.

      Is manager role eligible for stock refresh? What can we expect in base/bonus/stock ? 10YOE, previous FANG employers.
