Former Employee - Account Executive  in  Sunnyvale, CA
Former Employee - Account Executive in Sunnyvale, CA

I worked at 8x8

Pros

No-cap comissions allow for great earning potential.

Cons

Micro, Micro, Micro. Little flexibility. Write-ups are frequent and common practice. Negative reinforcement is huge. Stress levels are extremely high amongst peers. Management focuses on pure cash incentives to win-over employees, job enrichment is not a focus.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The negativity on the sales floor is being caused by management, not by the sales people. Time to wake up.

    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!!!!
