      Pros

      Great work/life balance, supportive environment, great workplace & perks. Xero is honest about what isn't getting right/where it could do better and proactively tries to do better. A lovely company to work for.

      Cons

      Starting to get quite heavy on the engineering requirements side, it's beginning to get in the way of development. Pay is low in comparison to the competition out there.

      Pros

      Great culture Great people and values One of the most progressive and forward thinking in terms of technology in New Zealand Great remote working support Cool office Good ESP

      Cons

      Salary not as competitive as other companies Lack of benefits Some legacy issues are holding the company back Diverse on the outset however management is mostly dominated by caucasian Very thick management layer, questionable hiring decisions and structure is starting to look very corporate Company used to be accountable and open to internal criticism however it seems that this is starting to change Promotion process is difficult, convoluted and beauracratic at best
