    Health care rising. Company using benefits to cut costs.

    Salary remains pretty constant (i.e., no raises). Bonus are nice and generally are every year. Health benefits are pretty average (although it is nice that Cisco is self-insured [no massive profits going to insurance companies]). Work/life balance okay.

    20 days of personal time off (PTO) plus one floating holiday per year. 401K match up to 4.5% of your salary. Great choices for health insurance. Many other perks such as tuition reimbursement and employee discounts.

    Current Director of Engineering in Milpitas, California

    Amazing coverage - particularly AD&D insurance and overall treatment of employees. Perhaps a couple of months of paid leave for every 5 years of service would be great.
