      Pros

      - Food, - Office - Cisco benefits - Trips (offsites)

      Cons

      Toxic kindergarten culture. The company culture is becoming corporate Cisco and losing its start-up culture - it is ok if you are not a start-up kind of person. In the cafeteria, it feels like you are back in high school: if you are not blond or good-looking, you are welcome.

      Great Place to Work!

      Pros

      Meraki is a brilliant company to work for with a clear focus on; Personal development Employee well-being Striving to try new approaches Being accountable to the company’s core values Successful quota attainment Outside of the above, this is a fantastic role to gain experience of the networking world in a simplified way. Channel partnerships and account management are at the core of your responsibilities and less so on a, “boiler room” mentality. The majority of the Sales teams hit target and this allows accelerated earnings for overachievement. The whole leadership team in the EMEA/London office will drop what they’re doing to help should you need any guidance and there has been a real and deliberate mission to bring aware to the D&I in the company.

      Cons

      Whilst the pay is competitive, it can be challenging to obtain salary increases with fixed windows to do so (the pandemic has also impacted this). If you are eager to work in the office, this is currently unavailable due to local restrictions, but this may be a positive for many.

      Pros

      - Meraki really cares about their employees, which has been the case both in the office but also throughout the pandemic. Meraki has done a lot to make WFH pleasant and possible. - Good onboarding and ongoing training throughout your career at Meraki. If there is anything you want to learn/do, you most likely can. - Very good products, which makes them easier to sell, and fun to learn about. - Good people, caring managers, fun and fast paced work environment

      Cons

      - No yearly pay review, ie. increase in salary is based on over achieving, which can be very hard in certain territories. - No clear structure on promotions, and if youre doing a great job, promotions are still very limited, which means people are "forced" to move to Cisco, if they want to stay within the company. - Salary below market rate.

      Meraki Response

      Talent Brand Manager

      Thanks for the feedback! We appreciate hearing about your experience with Meraki. We completely agree about how much Meraki cares about our employees—the actions you describe are a true testament to our company values. The well-being and development of our employees is a major priority for us. Of course, the quality of our team makes that easy to achieve: Merakians are some of the best you’ll ever meet. (Yes, we’re biased, but we’ve heard that same sentiment repeatedly over the years.) The opportunity to move to Cisco is another way we support our people. The strength of our parent company’s resources combined with our own unique culture means we can offer career options while maintaining a nurturing workplace. Regarding compensation, this is an important part of our employee offer package and we’re continuously evaluating data to make sure we’re offering market rate. If you have any questions, please reach out to your People & Communities partner. Thanks again for sharing your thoughts! Feedback helps us as we work to make Meraki a great place for everyone.

      Pros

      * Great product/technology * Fantastic support and flexibility during Covid-19 * Big growth and good results for all teams * Good culture

      Cons

      * Cisco influence is clear and is starting to feel more corporate and political * resistence to work from home after Covid-19 * little career opportunities * little pay reviews * Uneven manager quality. I had a fantastic manager but it’s a shame that other teams don’t have that experience

      = Some excellent people = Nice office = Good technology

      Cons

      = blame cultures = No career progression offered = No pay reviews ever = Uncompetitive pay = Middle management issues disregarded and overlooked = They request us to do feedback then make us feel uncomfortable by pushing to find out who is telling what = People speaking bad of each other all the time = Many stories talked about manager who says how staff are there to pay their mortgage = UK partners seem to always know the latest story on bad comments made by managers and gossip = Salary information shared
