I have been working at 8x8

Pros

Great people, decent support, remote opportunities, leads.... Good when it works... Nice perks, company events, provides food and drinks pretty regularly. Got stress relievers like ping pong table, foos ball tables, a Wii on the sales floor. Sales floor gets all the perks...

Cons

Long hours - 10-12 hour days expected, constant changes that disrupt the entire sales floor. Support is horrible. If you play the game of 'shoe-shining" well with management, you will move on up in life. No job stability, constant turn-over, everyone is afraid of their job security. Have 1 bad month, they are breathing down your neck, have 2 bad months, you'll get a surprise box...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Making changes are ok, but make sure you give enough time to see if the changes work before changing something else!!!!

    Pros

    The company pays good money and the products they offer are selling well in the current economic climate. Overall good place to be.

    Cons

    This position requires long hours. It is basically expected that you work 10-12 hours a day and should try to work some hours over the weekend (telecommute on weekend).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to prospective employee: Management is very aggressive to fill new sales positions. Initial underperformance is not tolerated and you will be replaced. Working long hours for the first few months is mandatory to make it.
