Current Employee - Inside Sales Representative in San Francisco, CA
Current Employee - Inside Sales Representative in San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Meraki full-time (less than an year)

Pros

- Work-Life Balance is great; there are several internal activity groups and Merakian events setup for employees to participate in
- The Cisco acquisition has brought a lot of positive attention to Meraki.
- Sales Goals are generally achievable.

Cons

- The accelerators on the compensation side, or added incentives, for over-achievers could use a brush up. I believe that those going above and beyond their goals should be awarded accordingly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of those bringing home the bacon.

    Pros

    Some smart coworkers (some arrogant).
    Management isn't that bad.
    Free snacks.

    Definitely would not recommend if you can find somewhere else, but not terrible.

    Cons

    If you want to work at an exciting start-up where you can make a real impact and reap the benefits... this is not it anymore.
    If you want to work at a top tech company where your work will reach the most people... this is (clearly) not it.

    Meraki is fun, laid back and inspiring - a dream to work for.

    Pros

    Best reasons, I could go on and on. We are surrounded by the smartest, nicest, friendliest colleagues. Management is open to suggestions, trying new things, running different mini-competitions to keep it entertaining. Ongoing training, clear pathways to advancement, lots of people advancing to completely different teams if they decide they want to go in a different direction from their initial position with Meraki. Quotas are fair with room to overachieve. New people are quickly welcomed, and the people on my team have become some of my best friends. Stocked fridges, beer on tap, sweet Public bicycles for Christmas for everyone, rooftop garden/bbq with an amazing view and catered lunch every day - these things don't hurt either.

    Cons

    Our CEO has stressed the fact that he negotiated with Cisco to keep the culture as it is, keep the fun times rolling, but still the future is uncertain down the road as we integrate further into Cisco. So far nothing has changed though -- at least, not anything that affects me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As one of the only females in the Account Development department, it might be nice to have some more women to chat with once in a while. But there are other amazing girls who sit near me in different departments, and the guys on my team are all incredible, so it really isn't an issue.
