Axios HQ ranks No. 3 on Glassdoors Best Places to Work 2024

ARLINGTON, Va.--()--Axios HQ, the leading internal communications software powered by Smart Brevity® and AI, earned the No. 3 spot on Glassdoor’s Best Places to Work 2024 for small and midsize (SMB) businesses in the U.S. — and boasts a 4.7/5 employee rating.

  • Why it matters: The Best Places to Work 2024 is awarded based on employees’ anonymous and voluntary Glassdoor reviews that evaluate their employer, their job, and their work environment over the past year. This places Axios HQ at the forefront of U.S. SMBs.

Roy Schwartz, Axios HQ CEO: “Ranking third on the Glassdoor Best Places to Work list is more than an honor. It’s a testament to the 130+ people who picked Axios HQ, who work hard every day, and who live the culture they clearly love. Our People team has really built an environment where every voice can be heard, the smartest ideas win, and inclusivity is a constant.”

Anonymous reviews Axios HQ employees provided on include:

  • “In my first fully remote position — I've never been more connected to an organization that is so intentional with its mission, values, and DEI plan, which is reinforced through effective communication, team-building activities, regular company-wide retreats.” – Aug. 7, 2023

  • “Our leadership is incredibly transparent. We have weekly all-staff meetings and a weekly company newsletter, and when big changes happen, they are over-communicated and people reach out to me personally to check in on how I'm feeling about the change.” – July 20, 2023

  • “Here, I really feel like I'm just working on a passion project with a group of friends. There's a big push towards incorporating AI in the platform and the team is going about it with responsibility and intention. It's exciting to be at the forefront of this, especially in design.” – May 4, 2023

Connie Marean, Axios HQ VP of People: “To me, the fact that this recognition is directly connected to how our employees feel about HQ is the true measure of our success. We can build a culture we believe in, but at the end of the day, if our employees aren’t the loudest and proudest champions of Axios HQ — something’s wrong. Our team's passion, creativity, and collaborative spirit are what define us. And it’s what our customers love about HQ, too.”
