"I was with Cisco for a long time and carried my salary with me, I am not a very relevant benchmark. I had heard, and in my own experience, started very low and had to wait for a long time to gain large increases in salary. Bonuses were nice when we got them. Other compensation was also very generous. Overall, not too bad over the years I had worked with the company."
