    12% bonus means you are a grade 8

    Yes it’s grade 8. Base is pretty good since the average grade 8 salary is 135-140k. Push for higher end like 150k. Good number of stocks. Most of time due to IPF u will get more than 12 percent as bonus. So overall a good offer

      Laughable grade inflation. Cisco will have to restructure it if everyone and their brother is getting G8/G10 out of college

      I think OP has 1 yoe outside Cisco. Cisco always give out more for outside experience than internal one. Yes it is difficult to get G8 in cisco with 1 yoe in Cisco.

      Ya they may have to give everyone to be competitive in their TC to even attract, but what about the rest that are still G 4,6,8 with 0-5 yoe? They don’t bump shit!?

    Grade 8 bonus is 12% and usually the base for grade 6 is 120-125k. My friend is grade 8 and has a base of 131k. All of these are in Man Jose

      Hmm that would be unfortunate. They seemed like they really wanted to be transparent to not waste either of our time.
