    I don't know about the band or grade since this offer is from Meraki and they don't have grade's that confirm with Cisco standards as such. But my offer letter says member of technical staff A02. Location is SF

    Your bonus might be prorated, meaning you will get 50% of the expected annualized amount because you are joining mid year. Ask for 17K more in sign-on.
