    I have been working at 8x8 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The most important thing you need to know is that 8x8 has a very distinct culture. Introvert or Extrovert, Tech or Non-Tech, new in career or seasoned veteran, individual contributor or people manager, this is a fast paced, energized and very fluid environment. It is also a place where you can own your success and career path.

    If you are driven, self motivated and able to navigate around issues, big and small, and have a fire in your belly to grow in your profession and career, you will do very well here. If you need an organized play book and a clear map of where you need to go and how to do it, you will most likely struggle.

    This is a highly self aware and collaborative environment. Very few jerks (although every company has some, there seem to be a lot fewer here then other places I’ve worked) and some wicked smart people who actually take pride in their work and care about their contribution to the overall success of the Company. Our Leadership is present and as transparent as legally allowed :-)

    This is not the place for everyone. But if you are up to the challenge, this is an amazing place and an incredible opportunity.

    Cons

    The can be ambiguity and as a 8x8 grows, it means that new systems, applications and processes are introduced. Some have better roll-outs and training than others. It's a lot of change so to call the environment dynamic would be an understatement. Not sure this is a con since this is all being done to help the Company grow and achieve a higher level of operational efficiency. It can be confusing and at times frustrating but the end result seems to be worth the effort.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing with the All Hands, QBRs, announcements and messaging. It is easy to lose sight of the big picture and to know about all of the 'wins' when you have your are so focused on your small part of the puzzle. This constant communication is motivating and essential to helping all of us keep our eye on the prize.

    One of the Company Values is 'We Develop Our People'. I see a lot of people who are give great opportunities to grow, take on more responsibilities and get promoted. I don't see that there are good training and mentor programs though. This type of investment in people you are promoting is not just helpful for their success but has great pay off downstream. I know there is a lot to do as we continue to grow our product and customer base but I think this is worthy of the time and investment.

    Most of all, don't muck with the Culture. This is a Fun, Engaging and Mentally Stimulating environment where everyone has the opportunity to contribute, grow and advance. Please don't lose sight of that as the Company grows and matures.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at 8x8.

    Interview

    It was long, which is very good. I interviewed with all 3 managers of the department and the Sr. Director of the department. Each manager and Director had very good question and really took the time to answer mine. By the end of the process I felt that I had a great opportunity not only to describe who I was and my skills but a good understanding of the role and expectations.
