    I have been working at BlueJeans Network full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The team! Moving the Mountain View office to Santana Row was a game changer. Access to great before/after work life at Santana Row. Access to gym, shopping, dining, spa and entertainment. Product is by far better than the competition. There's no choice other than BlueJeans.

    Cons

    There was a recent downsizing. It was a bold move by BlueJeans management to get bluejeans to the next level. Unfortunately, this caused disruption both internally and externally. While this may create uncertainty for some, the goal is clear.

    I worked at BlueJeans Network full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good people who know the value of hard work. Department leadership in CS is wonderful. Ok product. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    C-level leadership is unreachable and uninterested in their employees - the one and only concern is dollars and cents (so they’re ok laying off a massive amount of employees 3 weeks before Christmas with no forewarning or real explanation).

    I worked at BlueJeans Network

    Pros

    None! Horrible culture and treatment of dedicated employees. I worked at Bluejeans for 2 years and was part of the massive lay-off where they let 250 employees go. CEO didn’t even have the decency to tell us in a live webinar, we were invited to a recorded webinar where the CEO told us how great of a move it was to Lay-off half of the company in order to be profitable. CRO, CMO, customer success, Sales were all part of the massive RIF.

    Cons

    Horrible culture and dying product that can’t compete with Zoom, WebEx and Microsoft teams. The lay-off happened during Christmas of 2019 out of no where, with zero concern for the employees who worked here for many years.

    I have been working at BlueJeans Network full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Within my own team and organization, I have always felt supported and empowered to make decisions when it comes to work and my customers. -Flexible PTO

    Cons

    -The CEO laid off half of our workforce yesterday due to wanting to be a "profitable" company. Take this with a grain of salt as a lot of employees/teams needed to support and retain our customers are now gone. It was clear there was very little thought to this decision as there are zero mitigation plans in place to cover all the key players in our business.

    I worked at BlueJeans Network full-time

    Pros

    Working on some latest technologies.

    Cons

    Worst culture one can come across in the valley, a typical H1B sweat shop and especially in the engineering team one would come across a highly ego centric guy working over there, who I think is a deterrent in many ways to the organization . Its worst and only bonded labors like the H1B folks would stick to this company on the engineering side as they don't have any other options to move out in today's world.

    We value your feedback and agree that culture and camaraderie are critical elements for a thriving workplace. In terms of your other comments, we encourage you to review the USCIS website to get latest details on the various VISA requirements. There you will find that anyone with an H1-b is not tied to any one specific company. Our employees are here to build a great product and company and have earned the trust of some of the most demanding customer organizations in the world for providing a world-class service.
