    I worked at Axial full-time

    Pros

    A few talented developers, good medical and insurance benefits, a good office location in Boulder CO.

    Cons

    Unfortunately it seems Axial (previously Imulus) has changed their name to try and avoid their previous reputation. I recommend looking at the Imulus reviews on Glassdoor to see this company's true history. A once a great company, that cared deeply about employees and doing great work, is now dead. Their agency-quality website is a 3rd-party paid Wordpress theme called Oshine. And the same management that once... fired people the day they returned from cancer treatment has continued their hurtful practices: deceitfully luring in talented new hires only to remove them months later. The head of operations and now part-owner seems to be learning on the fly, ignoring honest and respectable business practices at every turn (like paying freelancers on time and taking care of small clients). Before becoming a client or employee of Axial I recommend asking around and getting the whole story. Previous employees will be honest and are easy to track down on LinkedIn or Github.

    I have been working at Axial full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The team is made up of people with a variety of skills and experience. This contributes to approaching each product from unique perspectives. Everyone who works at Axial is truly committed to the product, they will do whatever it takes to deliver the best possible product to the client. In terms of culture, it is a very horizontal structure. Everyone's voice is heard and the Directors really value everyone's opinion.... It is professional yet fun; high-expectations but collaborative; and overall a great atmosphere. For the first time I enjoy spending time with my coworkers outside of work!

    Cons

    Honestly, this is the best place I've worked and I can't think of any criticisms right now! If anything I would say some procedures still need to be solidified, but everyone at the company has a say in determining what these procedures will be, which is a nice feeling.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the initiatives to enhance company culture and promote bonding- it's great.

    I have been working at Axial full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people at Axial are what make this company great. Some of the most hardworking and intelligent people I have ever met. The company is being rebranded and the new name brings with it a new attitude and fits more with the direction the company was wanting to go. Amazing office off of Pearl st. Great benefits. A very bright future for this company.

    Cons

    Going through a growing and changing period. Processes are still being defined, hopefully to be solidified in the near future.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. There are great people at the helm of this company who I believe want to make us very successful.
