    I worked at Xora for 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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Xora full-time for more than 3 years

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 for 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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Xora full-time

    Pros

    Good team and hard working employees. Everyone is trying their best to make a difference but suffering with low morale.

    CEO and VP of Marketing are trying hard to make a difference .

    Cons

    Sadly the rest of the execs are playing politics and finger pointing each other every chance they get. Company cannot succeed if management does not work well with each other.

    We've lost and losing good people in India because the Indian leadership treats people with disrespect and has the "my way or the highway" attitude. Its really bad.

    MN office feels neglected by the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop blaming others and stop making excuses. Put your ego aside and don't act like you know everything. Humility goes a long way. Own up and take responsibility of your mistakes. Show some real leadership.

    I have been working at Xora full-time

    Pros

    The company has a good product and it's operating in a very innovative space. The product is very easy to explain and sell and people see the value right away.

    Cons

    The company has been around for long time and it has not grown much. There does not seem to be a good exit for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something different, old tricks are not working.
