Recently resigned at Cisco India but now feeling that my decision is not correct. Aspects...

1.Didn't consider promotion and stock grant coming in May/June while negotiating with other company. So basically other company matched current salary. New company is kind of downgrade considering Cisco as it's not one of the cool company to work for.
2.Was considering change because of management changes and job security was not there. But with changes management gave me project to lead.
3.I am working remotely and managing 2 teams without official manager position.
4.Working remotely has it's own downside. I am only 30 and there is a huge scope for personal improvement if work along with talented folks. This is not happening.
5. Cisco wise considering remote job security is still not there.

Venting out to get you all experienced comments and opinions... Shall I try to negotiate with manager and see if I can stay back with Cisco provided he offers me promotion with salary hike and stock grant which is anyway coming to all employees in May/June.

    Too late, man.

    Also, in general, you should always be getting a significant increase in pay when you move to a new job. It’s your only chance to do so, most of the time. Raises within the same company are small compared to what you can get by switching companies.

    Going to a new company for the exact same salary is leaving money on the table.

      Location in which I am it was hard to find employer who could match Cisco salary. So thought matching salary is also good enough.

    Resigning and asking to come back may just make you first in line to get fired later.

    Cisco employee for 7+ years. Not based out of HQ. All my posts should be treated as water cooler conversations. Interesting but not hard facts.
