    I have been working at Axiom Global full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Axiom is well-established and has relationships with many diverse companies, so it seems fairly easy to get placed in ongoing engagements. Also, their staff (at least in the SF office) are very friendly, welcoming, supportive, and provide lots of online and in-person resources (including many fun social events).

    Cons

    Can't think of any cons (except see "Advice to Management" below)

    Advice to Management

    Get your various benefits/compensation teams aligned to reduce the # of errors in implementation and payment of benefits/compensation. Also, it would be great to provide more/better benefits.

    I have been working at Axiom Global full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Axiom embraces innovation and (thoughtful) experimentation. This permeates the entire organization, from product to corporate operations, and is actively promoted by the executive leadership team. "Innovation" isn't just a buzzword here, and you can see it manifested in the way teams operate. Work plans shift and change frequently, but it's not because there's no strategic direction; it's because people are constantly...

    Cons

    Internal infrastructure (both technology as well as process and policy development) needs to keep up with the pace of change so that people don't feel like they are being held back. Recent executive talent investments (CIO and GC) point to this being a top priority, but while they are ramping up, the structural challenges continue to be a source of frustration for many.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the focus on innovation slip as we grow. Make sure that the infrastructure we need is set up to allow for the same level of agility and change embedded in our culture - this is what attracted and has kept many of us here. Provide more frequent global updates on the initiatives backed by the CIO and GC to motivate those who may be feeling discouraged. At the exec level: Over-communicate the rationale behind your...

    I have been working at Axiom Global full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Axiom is a well run company that provides legal services on a contract basis to a variety of companies. The employees are all seasoned attorneys who work in a variety of capacities, primarily in corporate legal departments; engagements can last from months to years, and the company has been quite good in rapidly finding followup positions after an engagement ends. Benefits include health insurance (which can be continued...

    Cons

    the biggest downside is that most engagements are temporary, and that the attorney will be changing where and how they work periodically. Also, while CLE is offered, it is sometimes difficult to take advantage of.

    Pros

    There is potential of doing something exciting and new with every assignment, the staff is diverse, smart and fun, you are a part of the cutting edge in the legal profession -- those attributes are rare in law jobs.

    Cons

    You may not be working even when you want to be. Opportunities for growth within the structure are limited.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to integrate attorneys meaningfully into the back-end/business side or decide that the effort is not worth it.

    Pros

    There are great people at Axiom, and some really great teams. Beautiful offices and a ton of potential.

    Cons

    Axiom is NOT a tech company, but they state that they are so that should tell you a lot. If you don't play politics well you will not survive. Overall Axiom isn't being truthful with itself...there were many many stories about sexual harassment, company parties with too much booze, operations across all teams is a COMPLETE mess and there is zero unified strategy in place. Hands down the most disappointing years of my...

    I have been working at Axiom Global full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Ability to choose hours Intro to great clients Perfect for an attorney who wants to work guaranteed hours and balance work and life-but you are compensated less as a result.

    Cons

    Submarket compensation when working hourly No 401K match PTO is not commensurate with level of experience of attorneys The structure is great for an independent person, but not for a new attorney who needs to learn how to practice law and gain expertise in a specific area. I have been lucky to have one assignment for the whole time I have worked here, but others say time "on the beach" can be extensive. Compensation...

    Advice to Management

    At times attorneys are commoditized rather than seen as the experienced professionals they are. Compensate them accordingly and provide senior level PTO

      I have been working at Axiom Global part-time

      Pros

      This company offered me a very fair, market-competitive rate and I'm excited for new opportunities to grow here. A refreshing model that I think provides a win for all parties (client, attorney and Axiom) and provides agility in today's marketplace. Got my first engagement (in line with what I requested) in a matter of days. Looking forward to doing more with this company!

      Cons

      No cons yet. I'll update if that changes.

      Advice to Management

      Keep doing what you're doing. You're offering a model that attorneys who are ready for something new can truly get behind and grow for you. You're drawing in top talent at fair-to-excellent comp, which makes this a delightful place to work. Everyone benefits in this model, and I could not ask for a better setup for this season of my career. Excited to be part of this team!
