    I have been working at DrAxe.com (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to work with brilliant people in all areas of the business.

    From customer service to product dev to social media to marketing, these are seriously some of the most talented people on the planet.

    But the crazy thing is nobody is resting on their laurels.

    Everyone is looking to grow and there are tons of opportunities. You're always encouraged to be innovative, think big, and create something new -- even if that means challenging the status quo and breaking all the rules.

    Like anything in life, you'll get out what you put in. If you're looking for a place to coast or a straight up 9-5 work life, then this probably won't be a good fit for you.

    But if you're willing to work hard (and be rewarded for the work you do), then this may be just the change you've been looking for.

    The salary is competitive and benefits are on the way. 100% self motivating work environment. No dress code. Monthly (and generous) stipend of the products.

    Cons

    You have to be self motivated. NO ONE will hold your hand. Your team is there to support you. But the key is that word: support. No body is going to do your job for you.

    If you need constant affirmations from management and aren't willing to push yourself, this company isn't for you.

    Advice to Management

    -- Keep inspiring, motivating, and enabling employees to do their best work. You set the example of excellence at the top. And as we grow, that will only be more important.

    -- Transparency is key. Shine more light than you think is necessary -- so everyone knows what's going on.

    -- Nail down roadmaps and onboarding. As more employees join this rapidly growing company, it'll be key to have systems that bring people in and get them up-to-speed efficiently and effectively.

    -- Last but not least, keep up the great work! The leadership is amazing here. Every one on the leadership team cares for the employees and embodies the core values of the companies.

    There's an old saying: "A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves."

    Right now, the leaders embody this idea to the fullest.

    Keep it up and we'll do even more than we all thought was possible.

    Pros

    The people that work here, starting with the founder Dr. Josh Axe and the president Evan Tardy (who's been working with Josh for over 5 years) are genuinely great, hard-working and smart, with the right principles. Plus the company is growing by leaps and bounds, in terms of revenue, website growth, audience metrics, etc.

    The work can be tremendously rewarding, for it's a natural health company that seeks to help people get better through food/nutrition, natural remedies, supplementation, exercise and more. Whether our web articles, special programs, ebooks or products, it's empowering to know that we are truly making a huge difference in the world ... and our core audience (which grows every day) not only appreciates it, but let's us know in our 1M strong Facebook community.

    Josh and Evan also believe strongly in letting people govern themselves for the most part, and each employee is steered to what they do best as well as what serves the company the best. That is a marriage that can be difficult in some companies, but not here because the management team is so strong.

    Cons

    You must be a self-starter, for while the company has grown, there isn't always a lot of oversight to keep people on task. It's up to you to take care of your work and stick to deadlines.

    The pressure can be high and often more is accomplished in one week here than what takes several months at other companies. That doesn't mean the hours are longer necessarily, but the pace can be intense.

    The growth from a startup to mid-sized company can be awkward at times, and the lack of health insurance (supposed to change soon), 401K and not enough vacation time can be frustrating for employees who've worked at other places more generous in these respects. That being said, we've been assured that positive changes are coming in all of the above.

    Advice to Management

    This is a special company. Continue to look to leading, new age companies to make sure we are being fair and generous in terms of salary, vacation time, benefits, etc. While everyone (for the most part) works very hard, the efficiency and drive will go up another notch if we truly take care of everyone.

    I have been working at DrAxe.com full-time

    Pros

    I have been working here, full-time, for almost one year. The environment here is unlike any I have ever experienced. Everyone is so positive, full of energy and inspiring. It feels like one big family, where all opinions matter and everybody is willing to help no matter what department they work in. I wake up every day excited to go to work. We work extremely hard to help people become the healthiest they can be and it feels so amazing to be a part of that.

    Cons

    We are improving/growing every day, making us stronger and able to continue building our foundation with our mission. If you aren't prepared to work hard to help grow a company then maybe this job isn't for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing job!

    Pros

    I've never worked in a more encouraging, inspiring or challenging environment. Every member of the Axe Wellness team works collaboratively towards the same goal, and everyone is willing to pitch in and help-- no matter what department they work in.
    Management cares about your goals, your colleagues care about your success, and no one is every "passing the buck."
    Suggestions are always welcomed, input is genuinely considered, and every opinion matters-- it's really a unique and exceptional place to work.

    Cons

    They are currently fine tuning their health benefits package, and they will be offering them starting next quarter as they surpass the 50+ employees mark!

    Incredible team full of creative, smart and passionate people who love what they do and why they do it. This is a dream job and I love the atmosphere I get to work in. I feel the freedom to grow and create as well as enjoy my team and work with other like-minded people. The energy, dynamic and authenticity of this place is unlike anything I have seen and I feel blessed to work here.

    This isn't really a con but this place is growing super fast so you have to be ok with things changing and moving and growing at a rapid pace!

    Pros

    Work from home on Tuesdays and Fridays. Competitive Salary. Amazing potential of company as a whole. Super nice team. Growing incredibly fast. Unlimited education fund - buy any topically relevant book on the company.

    Cons

    Moving from Cummins Station in Nashville to Franklin, TN. May be too fast paced for some. If you don't like to work really hard, you won't like the job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. You instill confidence in the team everyday in both ourselves and the company.

    I have been working at DrAxe.com full-time

    Pros

    This is a fabulous corporate environment! Lots of healthy community snacks, teas, essential oils, and probiotics, as well as a break in the afternoon for everyone to do a little stretching and exercising. Lots of music and fun here, as well as TONS of productivity and growth.

    Upper management is all about productivity not just time in the chair - so they are flexible with days in the office or working from home. Love the happy attitude here.

    This company is going places.

    Cons

    Maybe one downside is the amount of growth is happening so fast that we need to have more space to fit everyone! It's a little tight right now.

    And benefits need to be a little better, like insurance and 401ks, maybe matching dollar for dollar every time an employee contributes. Those plans are always so good.

    Advice to Management

    Just work on benefits, parking, and a larger space for everyone. Otherwise, AMAZING!
