Move from Microsoft L62 to Cisco

Microsoft kadamai
Jan 11 29 Comments

Is moving to Cisco in Seattle from Microsoft a bad move. The salary hike would be approx 13 percent. From 150k base to 170k base.
People scare me on blind abt regular layoffs at Cisco.
waiting for full offer to arrive at TC

      It’s possible. And 150 base is actually high for L62 - compa ratio about 1.07

      How long have you been at MS? Your pay seems quite low compared to what a lot people say they got here.

    You're crazy. Don't do it unless they pay you 50% more

    Ex-MSFT here and I wouldn't recommend this move unless you are getting like a 30% bump and more importantly a much expanded role or a role that you would really care for.
