Redmond WA. At Amaxra, we realize that a supportive workplace results in a better experience for our employees and customers alike.

Amaxra came in 45th out of 50 on the list, thanks to our combination of flexible workplace policies and a culture that encourages people to make the most of them.

Amaxra was selected based on responses to the Trust Index, Great Place to Work’s employee assessment survey, as well as an analysis of respondents’ anonymous comments. Survey questions assessed co-workers’ feelings on work-life balance, in addition to factors like communication, fairness and leadership that affect employees’ ability to accommodate their personal lives without compromising their careers.
“Creating career flexibility isn’t as simple as giving people time off or the chance to adjust their schedules to meet demands at home,” said Kim Peters, Executive Vice President of Great Place to Work®.
