    I worked at Xora full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small company feel. Casual work environment. Access to all levels of management.

    Cons

    Outdated product offering. Recently acquired by much larger firm. High turnover, both voluntary and involuntary.

    Advice to Management

    Fire less. Retention is important to morale as well as providing a historic reference point.

    I worked at Xora full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - it's a pay check

    Cons

    - creepy bosses who brag about spying on employees - invasion of privacy - little regard for basic human rights like the right to privacy after working hours - bosses who think they own human beings - bosses who need to find better, more productive uses of their time

    Advice to Management

    Change your spying culture or else risk being on the losing side over time.

    I worked at Xora (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent management. Decent training. Decent benefits. Pretty average gig overall with limited growth. Room to move vertically or laterally (career-wise) from within.

    Cons

    Nearly impossible to hit your quota. Channel conflicts are everywhere. Not a very fun atmosphere. Leadership is average at best. Weird office dynamic. Perks are sub-par and fail to motivate from within. People seem to be lazy there. The culture is not exciting.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your employees by giving them incentive. Improve perks of the job while working there, and the values of the company.

    Pros

    Culture is outstanding. The work is extremely satisfying and changes everyday.

    Cons

    New management team is brilliant but, in my opinion, they need to be more honest with the direction of the company and give solid reasons for decisions that affect the individual.

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest. Top performers should not be laid off without a clear reason.

    Pros

    Nice digs. Nice digs. and that's about LGBT it

    Cons

    clueless leadership. Company hasn't grown in 3 years. Management team is referred to as 'lightweight' by their wireless carrier partners. No innovation in product management in 2 years with the new arrogant CTA

    Advice to Management

    No advice. Advice to board (if they care). Fire the entire management team and get a new CEO who can hire A players.

    I worked at Xora full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Open communication; new infusion of talent in Sales and Marketing. The CEO is talented, but took over a company that had lost it's edge.

    Cons

    Didn't understand the service providers. Stretched too thin on the product and service side.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful when visiting accounts that are managed by our partners/service providers. Being 'right' isn't worth it if it causes a huge loss of sales momentum.

    The company has become better with new management. Good product. The company is showing good results.

    Will have to work extra hours some days to meet deadline.
