    Cons

    Pay could be better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at compensation more frequently and make sure it lines up to market value. 401k matching would be nice

    Pros

    RingCentral is a huge change of pace from previous employers I have had. It is a very energetic environment, and embodies a work hard play hard mentality. It is nice to be in a role, where your opinion is considered and help is never too far away.Great benefits, a relaxed work environment, and good pay are all factors that contribute. Not to mention they feed us everyday. Personally, I enjoy knowing that if I put in the effort I will be rewarded accordingly. Pay is pretty good. Management is responsive, and easily accessible. It's very nice to come to work, enjoy your role, and have a sense of fulfillment at the end of the day.

    Cons

    My only complaint is I would like to know my goals a little quicker each month, but it is getting better every month.

    Pros

    RingCentral has a market leading product
    Very collaborative environment
    Catered lunch MWF
    Great benefits
    Great leadership in the Sales Org

    Cons

    There are very few cons that I have found since joining, but if I had to pick one, it would be location. Not ideal if you are commuting from the far south bay or the city. We do have free shuttles from the train station though, so not bad if you take public trans.

    Pros

    Enjoy working as a member of the marketing team at RingCentral. Great product, relatively new space so always coming up with creative new marketing campaigns. Nice to be able to work with people from every department, don't feel like you're in a silo of 1, it's really a team effort and everyone comes together to get the job done!

    People are very friendly, creative office space (love my convertible desk, so I can sit or stand while I work), catered lunches are great, fun team outings to celebrate big accomplishments!

    Cons

    Steady employee reviews would be appreciated. I would like to know how I'm performing, and what I could be doing more of on a consistent basis. This will help me better manage my team as well. I think it's been about a year since my last official review.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep hiring great people! Move sales and marketing back together (we miss the energy and excitement!!).

    Pros

    Fosters innovation and entrepreneurship culture. Great product that sells. A very strong management team who knows what they are doing. A great platform to learn and grow yourself. I personally grew overall as a better professional by touching all parts of the business.

    Cons

    Building location and overall facility challenges. I think it's getting fixed now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more often with employees

    I have been working at RingCentral as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    RingCentral has the nicest employees. There are so many different types of people: young and old, serious and funny, soft-spoken and way too loud for their own good. All of them precocious to the bone and such a pleasure to work with. I have the fortunate task to interact with mostly everyone at HQ and at our other locations and each person I observe go above and beyond in their work ethic, to resolve any problems or disputes, and to create a welcoming and team-oriented atmosphere.

    Cons

    There are few challenges to working here but one would definitely be that we are still growing, learning, trying to get things right. We're constantly building our family and it's difficult to have limited resources we can utilize as efficiently as possible. We will continue to make mistakes and thus continue to learn from them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's necessary to have supervisors be an example in creating the welcoming and team-oriented atmosphere. It is them, to whom we look to for guidance and encouragement. It is in my opinion that any department is as strong as their leader.
