    I have been working at 8x8 full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company is going through a lot of changes and growth. The CEO really cares about employees and is very transparent about giving positive feedback, informing employees of changes in management, etc. There are fun get-togethers a couple times a year. The pay is competitive and the environment is playful. There are bean bags and games to provide a mental break during the work day. Though 8x8 is small-medium now, I could easily see if approaching the prestige of bigger tech companies like Google or Facebook.

    Cons

    The culture, while evolving, still feels a little outdated and stuffy. There have been recent changes (relaxing the dress code, adding more perks, catered lunches) that seek to emulate bigger names in the tech industry, but it is just taking some time for the company and everyone in it to catch up. The new-ish CEO was definitely a good move though. Training is thorough and growing rapidly to be comprehensive. Management is transparent with employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing, but don't be afraid to relax and allow change to happen.

    I have been working at 8x8 as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    8x8 is such an amazing company! I work in a most dynamic team with best of the best Manager. The employees are dedicated and knowledgeable. They are always ready to help their co-workers. There is perfection at every level of management.

    Cons

    I couldn't think of any thing. I will definitely suggest this to a friend. Employees at 8x8 worship their work they are highly motivated and dedicated. The company also hosts fun activities like free picnics, lunch, breakfast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue this legacy.

    Pros

    Fast-paced environment that allows for rapid changes. If status quo is what you like, this is not the place for you. If you're energetic and want to make a difference the corporate culture is very supportive. Relatively new management team with lots of good industry experience in running larger companies that can bring more ideas, structure, and discipline to 8x8. All levels of management work well together with lots of cross-functional cooperation. There is almost zilch politics in this company and everyone is focused on doing the right things for our customers and employees.

    Cons

    Lack of some formal business processes. But, this is not uncommon for a business of this size. There is a strong push and focus to develop in this area to be able to scale the business and things are progressing at a good pace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

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

    Pros

    Plenty of money to be made, mature product that sells, majority of sales reps are outperforming quota, regular promotions, contests and prizes awarded and a management team that cares.

    New office facility is AWESOME, so much closer to everything (light rail is 1 block away)!

    #1 service provider in industry, boy does that help with sales.

    Some older reviews share a different time at 8x8, that I was there to see and happy they are no more.

    Very friendly benefits and employee costs are more than fair.

    Cons

    Harder to shine now. It has become the norm to hit quota regularly and to be among the best of the best is challenging.

    Cubes are a little tight, but hey I'm making plenty of money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up, there has been plenty of positive change in the last 18 months. Here's for hoping that it will continue down the same path.
