I have been working at 8x8 full-time for less than a year

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!

  1.  

    Friendly corporate culture but shallow management overly concerned with stock price and growth at almost any cost.

    I have been working at 8x8 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Friendly environment, good compensation, ESPP plan, health benefits day one, daily snacks. Company is seemingly open to new ideas but needs more practice in implementation.

    Cons

    Mostly run like start-up with typical growing pains of a startup including loose structure and processes, ineffective Customer Support, small once-a-year 401K match, lack of inter-departmental communications, overly frugal in wrong areas, lack of values, lack of business and personal maturity prevail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have clear long-term vision and mission and impart to employees.
    Spend more time and money on processes, R &D, and customer support.
    Hire more visionary, seasoned, and mature executive management.
    Care more about your customers and employees.

    I have been working at 8x8 full-time for 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.
