    Pros

    Dynamic, fast-paced environment with nearly limitless opportunity for motivated employees and managers. Market leader in many areas. Despite the current success, management remains open to suggestion and you find that most have an open door policy. Many employees at 8x8 have progressed from entry-level support positions into high-level and Sr. positions without having to job shop. Motivated individuals who produce results are recognized and compensated accordingly.

    Cons

    Despite the success, there are some areas where the company has opportunity for growth and could use an injection of fresh talent from people with an outside perspective. This is not crippling, and presents great opportunity for people who have varying opinions, perspectives, and experience, to shine.

    Pros

    Reasonable place to hang my hat. Good technology, and passionate people that care about building a solid company.

    Cons

    Management has some issues with top down communications. Sometimes management will arbitrarily decide and the lower level staff has to clean up after the fact.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your people to make better decisions, instead of penalizing for perceived (and potential) failure.

    Pros

    Very bad people to work with.CEO (Vik) and his Team are the worst in the business.

    Cons

    Low Base/hourly
    micro managed
    mis-aligned management/agent goals

    Advice to Management

    After you clean house on the Executive team, step down and bring in some fresh new Board members with creative ideas and the willingness to listen to the employees' feedback. You have done a disservice to the company and the technology by letting the bad habits go on for too long.

    Pros

    Exciting growth, home grown products, management listens and responds, lots of employee feedback is fueling what we do and how we do it.

    Cons

    We push you to excel so if you aren't ready, you need to move on (or you will be helped out). Like most companies, not everything is perfect, but the compny recognizes this and attempts to get better quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep setting the pace. Keep getting ideas from tech industry leading companies. The cultural task force is a great idea.

    More incentives and better opportunities for raises and promotions.
