Sunnyvale, CA

I worked at 8x8 full-time for less than a year

ProsOpportunity to talk to great customers and teach them about 8x8's phone systems.

ConsGood-Old-Boys network...Young men in management...there way only.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire more women and people of color. Have more women of color in upper management. Be real with all people not just "good-old-boys". Thank you

Stay away from this place.

Account Executive (Former Employee)
Sunnyvale, CA

I worked at 8x8

ProsNo-cap comissions allow for great earning potential.

ConsMicro, Micro, Micro. Little flexibility. Write-ups are frequent and common practice. Negative reinforcement is huge. Stress levels are extremely high amongst peers. Management focuses on pure cash incentives to win-over employees, job enrichment is not a focus.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe negativity on the sales floor is being caused by management, not by the sales people. Time to wake up.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A victim of the Good old boy network

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at 8x8 full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThey throw a good party, they lavish gifts on sales, and they feed us on a regular basis.

ConsIf you are older, not a member of the ruling clique, or not a young female, there is no opportunity for advancement. And now Customer support will be run by the bean counters. Our customers will hate us more than they do now.

Advice to Senior ManagementMake a clean sweep,

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
