    Start up atmosphere still present as in not every system and process is defined. You have to grind every week and that may not be for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support the team and continue to develop your staff. Training and learning programs should be on going

    Pros

    The company changed leadership across the board a little over eight months ago and wow what a difference in performance and direction of the company! BlueJeans has a great culture and family atmosphere. It is a company you "want" to help be successful. Not just work there to earn a paycheck.

    Cons

    In certain areas of the business they are still getting over the "sins" of the past leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving in the direction we are going with the current strategy and culture!

    I worked at Blue Jeans Network full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -I liked my coworkers
    -Snack choices were on point
    -Centrally located offices
    -Coworkers are supportive and will help you whenever you need it

    Cons

    Do not be fooled by the glassdoor rating for this company
    3/4 of the sales team has quit / been let go in the last 9 months
    Low pay compared to other companies in the Valley
    The heyday was 2-3 years ago when it was fun to work at BlueJeans
    Haven't hit sales number in years, hence CEO change
    Horrible culture based around coworkers going out for going away celebrations (everyone has left or is leaving)
    Really high turnover
    All of BlueJeans customers are leaving to go to zoom (it's cheaper), which makes hitting your number really hard
    No cool perks like other companies

    Pros

    Great leadership and fun culture. Motivated employees with a 'do what it takes' attitude. I.e. - many wear multiple hats to support growth objectives. Great benefits and overall positive work/life balance is good.

    Cons

    Still a startup environment with many issues around internal processes and some recent changes to leadership.

    Pros

    BJN is an exciting product to sell. You have support all the way up to the CEO to make key deals happen. The bonus structure is strong for top performers.

    Cons

    Highly competitive space. Price can play a deciding factor for many buyers.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure top sales talent is retained, especially those with tenure.

    Pros

    There's a good work life balance and the snacks are good!

    Cons

    Hired a new team of C-level execs and people are leaving the company left and right. No one's happy and everyone's thinking of leaving. There's a general feeling that the management team just doesn't care about you.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. It all depends on what team you are on.

    Cons

    The cliques that have formed over the years make people get a strong feeling of impunity. Recognitions are a joke and you will soon find out that if you are not in a clique, you will never get recognize, no matter how hard you work. HR is not focusing on people, and perks are reduced to a minimum falling way below average, just like Bluejeans employee NPS scores.

    Some teams have sketchy workplace practices and inconsistent policies. Bosses hire friends and friends get special privileges. Instead of firing bad management, they get moved around within internal teams.

    There are many people with bad feelings about the company and some internal emails are very alarming. There is an overwhelming spirit that something is wrong across employees.

    Many people are leaving the boat. Bluejeans is not a hot startup anymore. It is just another company where that is good to land when you are in your 40's.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency is a one-way mirror. All-hands have become boring with people talking on slides that everybody has seen already, not giving any relevant information. Information is framed in "always a good news" king of speech.

    Thank you for your feedback. Work/life balance is important and part of our culture. Bluejeans has a variety of employees with different tenure. Each
