    I have been working at 8x8 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working with great people at a company with an excellent culture makes all the difference. Having been with a number of tech companies in SV over the past two decades, 8x8 is doing a great job of hiring the right people and creating the right culture to foster company, team and individual success. Great place to progress your career, as 8x8's continued growth will lead to lots of opportunities for new responsibilities and promotions. Excellent benefit package, more weighted towards stock depending on the role.

    Cons

    Fasting growing industry, must be self-starter to succeed. Everyone, in every role, is expected to contribute and push for success.

    Thank you for your review. We have some of the most elite employees in our field and our location will only get better! Our management strives to be as transparent as possible when making company decisions. Every new employee goes through our “fast start” program which highlights every key member of the executive team and gives all employees time to learn about what part of the company they run. All executives have an open door policy (most don’t even have an office) and are available to meet with at any time. We wish you the best of luck in your next role!

    Pros

    All together great people. A good range of intellectual diversity and age. The company really works to make sure everyone is comfortable and having fun. Good benefits at the SJ HQ - coffee bar on Tuesdays and free lunch on Wednesdays.

    Cons

    I think the day-to-day benefits could be a little more up to par with other Silicon Valley. I'd like to see more intra-department socials and just socials in general. We gotta make it fun!
