My First Month at Daxko

August 15, 2016 daxko

I’m sure if you read this blog, you’ve heard a good bit about all the perks of working at Daxko. From Family Lunches, to quality (free!) coffees and teas, to laid back atmosphere and dress, it’s all great stuff, for sure. But I think the part that floors me is not the deliberate efforts that have been made to that end, but the cumulative effect of all those little things (and probably some great hiring instincts). What I mean is that the collaborative environment here is like nothing I’ve experienced anywhere else!

In a past job, work friends and I would make a joke about there being a “cult of no,” where the default response any time you asked someone outside your team for something was “No, I can’t help you.” Too busy, too much red tape, etc. Daxko, on the other hand, is like a cult of YES! People here go out of their way to help out and teach you; and when they can’t help you, they give you a smile and point you in the right direction to get more help. Heck, on the day I waited in the lobby for my first interview time, no less than 4 separate groups of people stopped on the stairs to introduce themselves and make sure someone was coming to get me.

I guess it’s hard to explain, but I’m really just impressed with the attitude and demeanor of the #DaxkoNation. This is the kind of professional environment I’ve always wanted to be a part of.
