Tech Support Engineering 3 role in DFW market w/Cisco...
Contacted by a recruiter about a TSE 3 position (networking hardware) with Cisco in the DFW market (Richardson) and have talked salary/status (100K based on hourly rate, OT, contract to perm) , and was curious about the overall experience working at Cisco.
I know the rate is pretty low compared to numbers I've seen thrown around, but I'm also not doing SW engineering. I have 20+ YOE across the entire spectrum of telecommunications, cellular and defense and aerospace microwave. 285 credits in community college, but no degree, shit ton of experience.
Is the $100K range about the maximum ceiling for this type of work in the N Texas market as an individual contributor, and you'd need to go management or sales track to rise higher?
Also, what scripting/programming languages are good to learn? Go with the usual LAMP suite, or ???
