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

    Pros

    The amount of collaboration and can-do attitude at 8x8 is by far one of the best I've experienced in my 25+ year tech career. Leaders are engaging and humble, and the team members are eager to win in the market and enjoy the journey getting there.

    Cons

    Lots of work to be done building out new processes and the GTM organization. New leaders means change, but fortunately very good change and experience. We also have a ways to go with marketing our products. We have the best (and only) fully cloud platform with voice, messaging, and video - yet not everyone knows that yet.

    Pros

    Great culture, flat management and a place where you can express your ideas and be heard. With people who love to share their knowledge and expertise in cloud communication space.

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

    Pros

    I've been working here for 2 years and rarely have a bad day. During the pandemic 8x8 has been great at making sure employees are able to work safely at home. They provided me with an ergonomic work set up as my temporary set up wasn't sustainable - I really didn't expect to get all the equipment I received. Everyone has shares which makes us all feel like we're working towards a shared goal.

    Cons

    Like all companies, we go through change and sometimes team can diverge from a process. When this happen this can cause disruption for other teams but normally we're able to work around this.

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

    Pros

    Everyone is keen to help. Induction Training was good and timely. I personally found that of all the companies I’ve joined this one has been the easiest to get up to speed and to get to know people in other departments. It’s great to see a company embrace it’s on technology as well. 8x8 Work is a great tool for communicating with my colleagues across the world.

    Cons

    Haven’t really found any cons, except I haven’t been able to get into the office to actually meet people because of Covid
