    Pros

    Our leadership communicates with us regularly. They share their relentless focus on results and how we can contribute to that success. The company does a fantastic job of focusing on a work-life balance having to handle a global schedule and providing benefits that allow you to foster a personal life.

    Cons

    As with any growing business, you need to be prepared to pivot quickly and adjust processes accordingly. This is not a company for someone who just wants to "clock in and clock out"

    Pros

    Great CEO - he is great at keeping us informed and also praising the employees when good news is announced. When pandemic hit, the company created programs to help ease the transition to work at home. The gathered feedback to see how they could help.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is an issue

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

    Pros

    8x8's technologies allow me to work anywhere in the world. I have access to my team, management, and documents no matter where I am at. The tools and software that 8x8 uses are very up-to-date. 8x8 is a Google shop so everything you need is on the cloud. I work out of Minneapolis, we have a very beautiful office in downtown Minneapolis. Teams are very supported. Great cross-team/department collaboration. Good onboarding experience. A lot of company and product resources. Dev team is responsive to customer needs. The product suite is constantly being updated and refined to meet customer needs. Management allows flexibility and understands work-life balance. I do leadership taking the steps and effort to make changes. Overall I'm a fairly happy employee and foresee myself working here for many more years.

    Cons

    Cases/tickets can fall through the cracks. You do have to be diligent and follow up. Health benefits are good but not the best. Our internal and customer knowledge base is good but can use a facelift (better search capabilities and updated articles). Our support is the biggest complaint from our customers, and needs to be revamped.

    I have been working at 8x8 full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good product. Few exceptional leaders. Visionary CEO.

    Cons

    No work life balance. You are expected to work over the weekdays and weekends 24x7. Overburdened and constantly lose focus with messages from other colleagues and rooms. With the new work from home policy, we are expected to be available whole day, even during lunch hours. Micromanaged by different PMs, managers and other leaders. Work continues through the night to support endless releases and still have to report back again at 8 AM in the morning.
