    I have been working at Midaxo full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Midaxo is a really great place to work - I say this having worked with 100s of companies over the years, from start-ups to multinational conglomerates.

    The CEO is extremely smart, switched on, very approachable and very much up-to-the-job.

    Senior management is approachable and open to new ideas.

    Employees are motivated and work hard towards the common goal of building an amazing company.

    Friendly and approachable colleagues from across the world create a great working environment.

    We get things done (whether it's across product/sales/marketing/customer success or operations) and are constantly making progress/striving to be better.

    While there is a lot to do, work-life balance is good and encouraged.

    Life at Midaxo is relaxed and fun yet we all work extremely hard in building the company. We are scaling quickly and it is humbling to see the products of this work - new employees, improved product/software, improved processes, more customers, new offices and recognition of being the market leader in M&A software.

    Overall, Midaxo is a unique and very special place to work. There's nowhere I'd rather be.

    Cons

    Nothing significant - we're an early stage company so growing pains are inevitable.

    Advice to Management

    *Ensure that transparency is maintained as we scale.
    *Culture is key - maintain the relaxed but hard-working environment.
    *We have huge potential - ensure resources are allocated to building the right teams.
    *Spend the Series B wisely to avoid the need for a Series C.
    *Ensure individuals are incentivized to go the extra mile.

    Contract Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Midaxo (Boston, MA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Horrible. The woman from the company was ten minutes late calling me for a phone interview that I had scheduled directly with her just days before. After failing to apologize for being late, she just launched into a series of stock questions. It soon became clear to me that she had not reviewed my resume. She asked me questions like, "Do you live in the Boston area?" (yes, as my resume clearly states) and "Have you always worked as a contract recruiter?" (no, as my resume clearly states). It was painfully obvious that she was just checking boxes and filling in a form, as I could hear her loudly typing while I answered her form questions (it sounded like she was pounding on the keys!). I ended the interview early; you only get one chance to make a good first impression, as they say. I wish more companies understood that this truism works BOTH ways. As a recruiter, I go to great lengths to ensure that I value the time of my company's prospective employees/job candidates. I take seriously the role of ambassador for my company and appreciate the fact that how I treat candidates is a reflection on me and my company, and how we do business.
