    I guess they're ready to shell out $100-grand/year for an experienced professional to perform Junior-level tasks.

    Whoever wrote that one should be fired immediately!
    That really looks bad on all of the organization's personnel. IMHO, of course.

    That could be a Cisco Business Partner who can get an additional discount from Cisco if they add another CCIE.... but doesn't want to pay for a real CCIE.

    I've always wondered... just how much do you get off for a CCNA up to a CCIE?

    CCNA $35,000
    CCNP $55,000
    CCIE $100K +

    This is my completely useless anecdotal experience. Also I am pretty sure there are a lot of other variables depending on the exact case.

    Seems to me that HR departments need to work IT managers more. Is it normal for HR not to work with IT managers?

    HR kinda does their own research based off the job description that IT writes(at least in my experience). IT manager's dont usually put in "requirements" as much as job functions and technologies used. HR does the rest.

    Even better found posted today on a favorite IT site, name withheld to protect the innocent:

    Now where did I leave that blasted time machine? icon_scratch.gif

    It's obvious -- one of the requirements for those positions is to anticipate and react to issues before they happen.

    I'm sure all the people who met that unstated requirement did show up and got hired :D

    Depends on location, but you don't find too many CCNPs making as low as $55k unless they have very little experience. I think $60k is the low end, with around $80k being the high end. It's all relative to experience though.

    Edit: Just realized the original question was about discounts offered for levels of partnerships, about which I have no idea.

    I was checking out a job ad for a net admin and it asked for a MCSE or Network+.

    Since when is a Network+ even close to a MCSE?

    lol

    Number of combined certs your staff have denotes the level of membership to Cisco. You need so many of these and those to gain this level of membership along with how much you regularly buy.

    A gold partner that buys a lot of kit form them can typically receive 50%-60% discount per item.
