Fun and rewarding place to work

Quality Assurance (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Xero full-time for less than a year

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.

Great company, fun environment, room for growth.

Customer Experience (Current Employee)
Denver, CO

I have been working at Xero full-time for less than a year

ProsXero is a global company that is experiencing major growth, the opportunity for advancement is huge. The kitchen is stocked with snacks, and we have a pool table.

ConsNo cons so far, other than the traffic on I25 but you can' blame Xero for that. The office is located in DTC.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work and communication. Rod Drury should come visit the Denver office.

Great place to work

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

I have been working at Xero full-time for less than a year

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.

New Hire - Denver, CO

Customer Support Specialist (Current Employee)
Denver, CO

I have been working at Xero full-time for less than a year

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

Great place to work, room for growth and AWESOME culture

Account Manager (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Xero full-time for more than a year

ProsThe culture is awesome and I love how we really protect our brand and care about how we are perceived to the public and ensure its a positive experience for clients.

ConsAs we grow its been difficult to maintain the close knit feel, this is part of the growth process, so if all employees keep that as a priority we will do great!

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep treating your employees as people you would want to go to drinks with and don't get corporate!
