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

Pros

Based on my sub-Month experience on the job, there is an abundant of activity which I can get my hands on, own it, drive it, and provide value-add. The management is preparing the company for the next big growth wave. Im hoping the management will support these activities.
I love the fact there seems to be very little RED tape to get things done. And when things are decided, the project timeline from start to end is short.

Cons

Lots of small business mentality so getting "hands dirty" with the as-is processes is TIME Consuming. Since resource spend is very lean, then justifying the need for scalable process and system solutions will require some heavy lifting.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Support the initiatives which will support the longevity of the company.

    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!

    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 (more than an 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.
