    Great company with a forward thinking attitude

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsGreat culture and some talented leadership. Because it is still growing also means there is a lot of opportunity to make a difference within the company.

    ConsGrowing can often mean allocating responsibility which is always tough. Because of the transition sometimes process can slow change (though inevitable).

    Advice to Senior ManagementPositions often change which is great; however changes need to be clearly communicated in advance. Often a change "just happens" in management whereby it'd be nice to have a "I'm interested in this" phase. Also, while some positions don't necessarily exist yet, it'd be nice to know about the possibility of the position as we grow.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work

    Customer Service Experience Specialist-Payroll (Current Employee) Denver, CO

    ProsThe people at Xero have a great understanding of how people should be treated; both employees and customers.

    ConsThe only thing that has came up is their new insurance but its not terrible. With their growth they are having to get different insurance and figure out what works best. I'm confident this will work out fine.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you do and how you are doing it.

    Fun and rewarding place to work

    Quality Assurance (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsEnergetic, focused, customer-driven culture that pervades from top down. Supportive management and co-workers. Laid-back work environment. Can see that employees are sincerely happy to be working in an organization that is changing the market and excited about what they deliver to customers and the online accounting community.

    ConsSome growing pains with expanding globally like meetings across time zones but seems like strictly a telecomms issue that needs to be resolved.

    New Hire - Denver, CO

    Customer Support Specialist (Current Employee) Denver, CO

    ProsI recently completed the interview process and am excited for my start date to come. I can honestly say that I've never been more excited to start a new job. It is clear that their philosophy is happy employees make great employees. I could see this in the people that I had interviewed with. They were interested in finding out who I am and what I have to offer, as opposed to how well I can answer obscure interview questions. Everyone I talked to built my excitement by the way they talked about the company and how much they enjoy working for Xero.

    ConsNone that I'm aware of.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
