What people are saying about Xero




Senior Consultant

I've been a Consultant for about 8 years. I planned to get out of consulting to try my hand at commercial public relations/communications. I got an offer from Xerox to work with their corporate PR segment. Then I got an unexpected offer from KPMG to work with their transformation advisory segment doing comms for federal clients. Both are similar offers, 20% bumps. KPMG has slightly more PTO and EOY bonuses, but Xerox had a nice signing bonus and slightly higher base salary. WDID??

    Xero is truly a people first organization. I have worked at places that have said they were people first in the past, but I truly did not know what that meant until I joined Xero. Xero is #human for it’s employees and for it’s customers. They truly care about small businesses and making their lives easier. - Employee Resource Groups to talk about Diversity & Inclusion and how it effects Xero Employees - Amazing Leave! (21 days PTO, 10 wellness days, 5 other days)


    It is still in a start-up environment so it can be challenging to hunt down correct information or find procedures but as the company continues to grow I anticipate this area will get better.

      Average Interview

      I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Xero (Melbourne)


      An initial screening using general aptitude test and personality test. Followed by an online pre recorded questions interview before finally on site interview. Overall quite lengthy waiting periods in between.

      What would you do in a situation where a deadline was coming up but your team could not agree on a course of action.
