Company culture and innovative workforce make Axis one of the top 25 workplaces in the United States according to Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine

Axis was ranked #17 on the annual Great Place to Work® 2015 Best Small & Medium Workplaces list, published by Fortune magazine.
Axis Communications, the global leader in network video, was named by Great Place to Work® as one of the 50 best small and medium workplaces in the United States on their annual 2015 Best Small & Medium Workplaces list, published today in Fortune magazine. Ranked #17, this is the second consecutive year Axis has received this honor. Divided into two categories, Small (25-250 employees) and Medium (251-999 employees), the list has recognized companies with exceptional workplace cultures for more than a decade.

Competing against hundreds of companies across the country, Axis participated in a rigorous selection process, which included an employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire about benefits programs and company practices. Great Place to Work® evaluates each application using its unique methodology based on five dimensions of a great workplace: credibility, respect, fairness, pride and camaraderie. As part of the review process, Axis is also “Great Rated” by the Great Place to Work Institute. According to an employee survey conducted in 2015, 94 percent of employees say their workplace is great, while 99 percent take great pride in working at Axis.
