    Pros

    I sought out employment at Axis41 because they were rated as one of the best companies in UT to work for. I've not been let down! Love it here. Great communication, good benefits and awesome work culture. Only criticism would be the lack of transparency in the PTO scheduling.

    Cons

    Very few cons. Would be nice to be able to see PTO balance love for future planning.

    I have been working at Axis41 full-time

    Pros

    Great people to be around, pretty "hip" environment to work in. Company culture is unique (in a good way)

    Cons

    Been expanding very fast which is causing some serious growing pains. Some developers don't have enough work while others are overworked.

    Also, benefits aren't great.

    Advice to Management

    Pump a brakes a bit and re-evaluate the core strategy going forward. While this may cause some slowdown short term, it is necessary to continue to operate and grow.

    I worked at Axis41 full-time

    Pros

    There are a lot of great people at Axis41. The innovation and ability to create solutions to problems are endless. So much potential. The partners are great and you really do feel appreciated for what you do.

    Cons

    Despite so many great people, there are a few fakers who are poisonous to certain areas of the company. They will pretend to offer their support and tell you what a great job you do and how much faith they have in your efforts, but as soon as you try to cash in on those promises and good faith, you will be tagged as incompetent and will not be given any meaningful work to do. They will micro-manage you and make you do things exactly the way they say to do it, taking away your ability to think creatively or collaborate with others. They offer no training or onboarding, so expectations and "standards" are never clear until you've screwed something up. Then they blame you because you didn't ask questions.

    Constant reorganizing is the result of having grown too fast. There was a hiring surge over Summer/Fall 2015, and several people were brought in and kept for a few months and fired. The guy sitting next to me was fired the day before Christmas weekend. Reorganizing has resulted in constant communication issues. I got in serious trouble with one of these toxic managers for using a web application that wasn't "approved", but was widely used throughout the company. There is no consistency and this "make it up as you go along" approach to management caused numerous problems for me.

    Advice to Management

    1. Train people 2. Figure out your "standards" and make them consistent 3. I don't want to name names here but some of your more intense managers have no business managing 4. Hire more carefully and deliberately

    I have been working at Axis41 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really smart co-workers, interesting and diverse work, great management, big enough to attract good clients but small enough to be agile.

    Cons

    Growing too fast for its own good (lack of organization when it comes to delegation of responsibilities), Mac-only office (if you work with Excel a lot you'll need Parallels or Boot Camp and a stress ball).

    I worked at Axis41 full-time

    Pros

    You work with highly talented, highly awesome people. Except for a couple of people, there is very little ego, and you have the chance to make your role as great (or not) as you wish. Never would have left, but had family issues in another state and had to move.

    Cons

    I'd go back today. Can't really think of a con.

    Advice to Management

    The partners know what's up. They're new HR exec is stellar, and their benefits are improving. Keep it up.

    Pros

    Bagels, donuts, good pay, Reed, and I loved what I did

    Cons

    Account Execs. They will bury you if client is not satisfied and will do what it takes to bury you. Also, not great if you're not Mormon or a BYU grad.

    Advice to Management

    The Strategy exec needs to improve with training in the department. They preach on "investing" in employees, but they really just want to make money off them, like a hair salon. I wish I was a part of another team. The Strategy team is so clique. If you don't own a gaming system have fun trying to relate. Managment let me down.

    Great place to work, the work you are asked to do is exciting, and the people here are top notch

    Cons

    On boarding could use some attention, but not a big deal
