Does Meraki offer relocation assistance?

Pros

The flexibility of working remote or going to the office is a great perk. Office has food, drinks, and games to break up the day to day work. Benefits package is what you would expect from a big company such as Cisco (good benefits). Work-life balance is good as well.

Cons

The culture is what Cisco prides itself on, but that is lacking on the Meraki side. If you don't know the right people you will not be recognized or go farther than the role you start in. Career advancement and development goes to those that have been with the company even if they don't have the experience.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to the feedback that employees are giving (because speaking up takes courage and it usually means that the individuals are passionate and believe in the company) and make sure they know you have heard them by speaking to it on organization calls. Don't use "perception is not always reality" to side step the issues affecting the thousands of front line employees doing a great job everyday.
