    Battery Ventures list highlights privately held cloud companies with the highest levels of employee satisfaction, despite the continuing workplace uncertainty of Covid-19; Axonius ranked third overall


    NEW YORK--()--Axonius, a leader incybersecurity asset management, was recognized as one of the 25 Highest-Rated Private Cloud Computing Companies To Work For in a list released by Battery Ventures, a global investment firm and cloud investor, with data specifically provided by Glassdoor*, the worldwide leader on insights about jobs and companies. The list highlights 25 privately held companies—all business-to-business, cloud-computing companies—where employees reported the highest levels of satisfaction at work during the 12 months ended Oct. 31, according to employee feedback shared on Glassdoor.

    The distinction placed Axonius at number three (out of 25 total), with an overall company rating of 4.87, above the Glassdoor average of 3.7. Axonius earned a senior-leadership rating of 4.53, compared to the Glassdoor average of 3.3, while its positive business-outlook rating—indicating the percentage of employees who believe their employer’s business will get better in the next six months—was 92.31%. That compared to an average across Glassdoor of 54%.

    This is the fifth year Battery has issued a version of its highest-rated cloud companies list, along with a related ranking of the 25 Highest-Rated Public Cloud Computing Companies To Work For. The rankings—which this year come as many companies continue to face workplace challenges associated with the Covid-19 pandemic, including remote and hybrid work—highlight the global trend of businesses increasingly turning to the cloud to run critical technology systems and software, instead of using on-premise systems.

    “While the pandemic has accelerated the businesses of many cloud companies—whose products often help fuel digital transformation—many cloud CEOs are still grappling with how to build great corporate cultures, hire the best employees and retain them in an incredibly fast-changing and unpredictable business environment,” said Neeraj Agrawal, a Battery Ventures general partner who specializes in cloud investing. “The companies on this list should feel proud of their success in building positive cultures and promoting employee satisfaction, which often translates into financial success. They really are modeling best practices for other organizations across the economy.”

    “Culture is paramount at Axonius. As we take on the toughest challenges in cybersecurity and technology, our leadership team remains committed to creating an environment where employees feel supported and celebrated, with ample opportunities for personal growth and success," said Dean Sysman, co-founder and CEO, Axonius. “Being an Axonian means loving a good challenge, aspiring high and always striving to improve. I am so proud and humbled to be leading a team of the most talented, dedicated professionals in the industry.”

    Glassdoor noted that employees at these highly rated companies commonly mention in online reviews that they enjoy working for mission-driven companies with strong and unique company cultures; employers that promote transparency; and companies with experienced senior leaders who regularly and clearly communicate with employees. For instance, according to one anonymous employee review of Axonius on Glassdoor:

    “Everyone here is super smart, hardworking and extremely friendly. The team has grown so much over the last few years and everyone is genuinely engaged, excited for the future and committed to supporting each other. The technology we use is top notch, our product incredible and our clients are amazing as well. We're a fast-moving start-up that has hit the next phase in our growth journey and so far it's been a great adventure...The benefits are better than anywhere I have ever worked, salaries are above the competition and the potential for professional growth is unlimited.” Read the full review on Glassdoor.
