Culture is one of the top item’s candidates look at when selecting an organization. And Axle agrees! Whether you are a new college graduate or a seasoned professional looking to make a switch, culture is what makes the difference between a short-term job and a long-term career. Sure, we can tell you about Axle’s daily ping pong challenges and foosball tables. We can tell you how delicious our Free-Lunch-Friday menus are and how much we love rewarding our teams’ hard work with afternoons off or the all-expenses paid trip to the Caribbean that our top Consultants compete for each year. All these things have created a fun, positive and rewarding environment.
But for us, culture is defined by our people – the incredible individuals that we have the privilege to work with each and every day. The comradery and friendships that exist within our workforce is unmatched. We’re all teammates working towards something bigger than ourselves and the goal is constant improvement. We celebrate wins alongside one another and pick each other up in those stressful, tough moments. A healthy blend of competitive yet supportive currents allow us to maintain this constant chase of bettering ourselves, our clients, and our vendor partners. On top of that, our entrepreneurial structure offers a much different type of motivation where we take ownership of our successes and failures and as a result, motivation comes from an internal place rather than “working for the man” (a more common and much less rewarding external motivational structure). We look at business as both sport and an art form and we love what we do!
These few mentions and many other tiny factors are what produce the makeup of our unbelievable culture and why Axle is a cut above the rest. Don’t believe us? Read what five of Axles fantastic team members had to say:

A career should serve and provide many different functions. Culture is the DNA that drives everything: values, ethics, purpose, expectations, goals, norms, systems, habits, language, assumptions, relationships, and much much more. It is a known fact that the cultural environment one works within day in and day out has a drastic effect on life in so many ways. Come check us out if you’d like to feel the vibes of a great culture rather than having to simply imagine what one could be like!
