Tbh FAANG is massively overrated. The move is pre-IPO startups where your shares may be worth a ridiculous amount post-IPO. Have experience at a major EC VC tech firm then use it to keep switching between high prospect newer companies

@Senior Counsel... it is kinda hard to miss some of them if you work for a Big 4 EC VC firm..... and there is a major jump in pre->post ipo. For example robinhood or airbnb were predictable long before ipo

Chill people, great benefits, interesting work.

How is the pay at Cisco? Competitive with newer tech companies?

I think it’s petty competitive with other tech companies. It’s not going to beat the likes of Apple or Google, though.

This is such a basic question, but what’s the best way to give my two weeks and not have things be completely awkward at work? I’m leaving to do the same type of work, but at a firm that I worked for in law school and that I know has a much better culture. My boss has a tendency to be passive aggressive towards people that are leaving and given that my office is right next to hers I’m worried my last two weeks are going to be so uncomfortable. Suggestions/advice?
