2 yoe. No raise this year. Planning to look for jobs elsewhere. Is switching to other BUs in Cisco worth it?

    • I think being content is key though. It is how much you save and invest, not TC

      That's on the high side snake. $120-140k is more reasonable for new grad.

    Try for 127k atleast
    I know ppl grabbing 132k for g6-> tough they put in some competitive offers

      Seems ridiculous to put in competitive offer and then get more and join Cisco ๐Ÿ˜‚. I mean if you are already here and did that (get a offer and use it to increase your package and then stay), then that's good. Even then not so good to stay for ever

    What BU you in now? Not a lot of people getting raises this year or RSU's, except chucky and his sleazy exec team. All despite great numbers. Cisco just refuses to be competitive. I'm starting to look elsewhere myself.

      SPBU! Did get RSUs worth 40k, but not happy without a raise.

      SP is rough with bad numbers this year. I'm surprised you got RSU's. I'm in global enterprise with blow out sales numbers and growth and we got zero raise, zero rsu's and actually have a pay cut coming after this quarter ends.

      OP
      With bonus it's about 125k, got RSUs this year, so ignoring that for now.

    FWIW, I was recently promoted to G6 and my new base pay is 70k. This is for the RTP location though.
