So I recently got an offer at Tiktok but I’m not actually interested in joining due to their poor WLB. TC is currently 30% higher than what I make. Can I share this with my manager and ask for a counter offer? Counter offer seems pretty common at our company, but they don’t necessarily match the bump exactly, which is fine. Is there a chance that he is taken aback that I’ve been interviewing during work time and kicks me out? Don’t want to take the risk of actually accepting Tiktok…

My time at 8x8 was been enlightening, revealing aspects that have room for growth to truly harness the company's potential in the tech industry. While the organisation shows promise in innovation and success, there are notable hurdles posed by certain cultural aspects. Although culture looks great on paper!
One key area that could see enhancement is the level of transparency and communication from upper management. Establishing clearer lines of communication could foster a greater sense of connectedness and value among employees, avoiding confusion and building trust amongst employees. There's a noticeable sense of competitiveness in the work environment, jobs for friends and a general low level of professionalism. Encouraging a more cooperative atmosphere might unlock untapped creativity and drive, fostering a conducive environment for growth. The concern regarding work-life balance is worth addressing. While the dedication of employees is evident, balancing work demands with personal time is essential to prevent burnout and ensure sustained well-being. Regarding diversity and inclusion, while the company's values are aligned in theory, there's an opportunity to bridge the gap between aspiration and practice. Addressing biases and striving for more inclusive practices could truly create an environment where diverse talents flourish. To summarise, while 8x8 possesses the foundations of a successful company, addressing these cultural facets is vital to unlocking its full potential. By prioritising transparency, fostering collaboration, supporting work-life balance, and genuinely embracing diversity and inclusion, 8x8 can better retain its talented workforce and solidify its position as an innovative and successful organisation.1

- Relaxed work environment - Not much pressure - Office parties are nice - People are nice - Lot of career opportunities because folks are leaving. - Java developers seem to have nice learning opportunities.
- CEO was not popular between employees. - People were not going to the office (not even for parties) - They removed the stock options. If you're a DevOps, also consider the following: - You will be doing mostly configurations in "in-house" developed platforms, and projects implemented by someone else - You will have access to change virtually nothing - Documentation? What's that? Maybe the person that implemented that certain tool still works in the company... - No real access control in place: you can either have zero access to AWS or have access to everything and nobody cares. - Getting access to platforms is a nightmare. After one year of working in 8x8, the team still had different access levels - Would you like to create a DNS entry? You probably will need a whole month of meetings and pinging people around to get it. - You will probably be supporting legacy systems.5

Most of the people I had the chance to work with are great engineers so there's definitely opportunity to learn and grow.
Most departments - business and engineering - act like distinct units, there's no cooperation between the main product areas. There's no culture of sharing knowledge between departments or willingness to do so. Lots of engineering people in key positions treat information as a trading currency and will refuse to help you if they feel like there's nothing to gain on their side even though it's their job to do so. The senior management has no clue what to do with the company or the products. All you have to do is look at the share price evolution for the past 3 years and you'll see what I'm talking about. There's no clear direction, just surviving at this point. Benefits are low tier, even the meal tickets are still only 13 RON at the time of writing this. Micro-managers are pushing for RTO with limited success so far.2
